I'm not really a power user but I do enjoy maximum performance so can you tell the difference between 1 regular SSD and 2 in a RAID0 array?
Raid won't improve access times nor general usage. Raid won't really make any difference other than tossing around massive stored files (sequential). Also, you can use TRIM with Raid now, but I still think raiding SSDs is a total waste of money for 95% of users.

My Raid 0 definitely does not operate the same as any of the multi-million dollar commitee designed crap at work.

During games both online and single player, levels pop into existence with maybe 1 or 2 seconds at most. Loading screens have largely gone bye bye.

Now if your focus is Office type work / spreadsheets then no, you wont be amazed. Also Risk of failure on drives that have no moving parts is considered almost rediculously low compared to spindle drives.

I back my data up regularly so I'm not worried about some potential failure at some point longer than i'm going to have the hardware.

Raid 0 SSD = Voodoo2 SLI back in the day. Quantum leap upgrade for most persons as hard drives are basically one of the slowest data transfer hardware parts in your computer.

I challenge you to find any professional review showing RAID significantly improving game load times. Any year, any hard drives, any game are acceptable.

You still can't TRIM an array though.

My game load times decreased significantly when I put my raptors in raid. In The games that have a cutaway dialogue while the level loads, most of the time I don't even have time to read it before the level loads and the gameplay begins. I had plenty of time before raid.

Personally I would take RAID 0.

Reason being is that

a) I deal with large files on a regular basis.
b) Recently at a LAN, I was sat next to my mate with his new Vertex 2E 120GB and literally every game we started at the same time, I was loaded twice as fast as he was...

Yes. The would be the only reason. Not because of high risk failure, just I think it's a high risk period. I would do another sort of RAID that doesn't depend on the other drives 100%. I am not doing it because of lack of trim or anything like that.
Ahh!
