Once ya have stripes, ya never look back
I don't like the security of a striped array though.
I keep all my downloads, and documents on the 120GB hd
Also good if ya feel like burning while watching movies from the HD, playing games/etc
My next move -> 4x120GB Raid 0+1 woot!
2 times faster than single drive, reduced seek times for multiple file accesses and Data security
Raid 1 allows to read/write different files from both the main and mirrored arrays similtaneously, so in effect reading 2 different files sequentially will result in 1/2 the seek delay.
Of course the seek delay is still the same, but if 2 files are accessed at the same time, then both striped arrays will seek to the different files simultaneously, read simultaneously, but the second file will already be in the raid cache when it is required, hence the second seek delay will be nil.
Average of 1/2 the seek delays
