Re: SSD Drives have arrived - I have Q's
said by ejg1:I'm sorry I wasn't around to provide you that feedback, but I would never RAID SSDs and then boot from them--I know the Vertex 2s have better reliability than the atrocious asynchronous Agility drives--but I would stay away from RAIDing them. You will not notice the speed difference (once you force them to SATA II) and the potential for headache is not worth it.
I did not get the same feed back your giving in my other planning thread. Bad idea to RAID the boot system? I understand your reasoning but if the rate of failure of a single drive is 1 in 10,000 I dont mind 2 in 10,000 chances of failure.( I am guessing the rate is better than 1 in 10,000) I am good with backups. I will need more time to look at your link but I understand the OCZs have wear leveling and will be lightly used thus diminishing the TRIM concern.
If the chance in failure is 1 in 10,000, yours becomes double that, or 1 in 5,000.
Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
