What two set of HD's could I buy for RAID 0

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was planning to buy a Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB HDD (WD1002FAEX) from amazon for $89.99. Any suggestions on two HDDs to buy that is similar but great in performance to WD1002FAEX's price?


Ps. I cant buy from newegg/etc due to the shipping costs to Hawaii

I'm not sure how much they are in the US, but see how much Samsung Spinpoint F3 or F4's are. Two of them in RAID-0 will exceed the speed of a single Caviar Black.

F4's are about $59.99 (amazon w/FREE with Super Saver Shipping.) =(

Would WD2500AAJS (Caviar Blue) ($42.99) x2 be sufficient?

My vote is for two Samsung F3s. They are ridiculously fast for the price (I don't know how easy it is to attain them in Hawaii though).

Through websites. The best bet is for me to get my computer stuff from Amazon because of the free shipping. Those F3's are costing about $120 from newegg and Amazon(didnt have free super saving). >.<"
