    Personally, I'm not particularly fond of RAID 0.

    Does TRIM work with this drive?

    RAID 0 should offset the speed hit incurred by using asynchronous NAND, but if one of the drives goes then all data is lost. No thanks. Reply

    How is that any different than losing a single SSD? You're still not recovering data from it easily - if at all. The solution is always to have a backup.

    A regular 6Gbps 480GB Mushkin SSD can be had for $320... so this shouldn't cost more than $700-750 (street), hopefully. By no means should it be at or over $1/GB...

    It's exciting to be so close to $500 1TB SSDs!

    It's the same problem as RAID 0 with mechs, you double the likelihood of an unrecoverable drive failure. It would be interesting if they could use a RAID mode that was actually redundant, like 5. Reply
