Ahhh so Toshiba has bought them up I was wondering why I was seeing a review for a new OCZ product. Glad to see hat at least for now they're still kicking around.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

Thats the idea, 2 lower cost drives in RAID 0 are a better performing option than one drive with the same capacity.

Precisely. Grab a couple 128GB drives, put them in RAID 0, and just enjoy the speeds and larger capacity.

And the hassle. I'd do a single larger drive every time after having messed with RAID setups far too much. :lol:

Yeah but you are running huge RAID sets.

I mean at home. I've run dual and triple striped sets more than a few times and the hassle when things break or go wrong just isn't worth it any more. :cheers:

This + that drive isn't what I'd call cheap, only drives at or around $0.50/GB are cheap to me :P
