For a RAID 10 to out perform a 520MB/s SSD drive it will probably need a huge array of 10 drives or more, depending on the speed of the drives.

At the moment SATA 2/3 drives will always offer the best speed/reliability/cost solution (i.e. all 3 factors tied together, they aren't the fastest).

The best SSD on the market is a PCI-e card and they are very expensive.

Don't forget if you are rich and you want to show off, you can get 4 SSDs at 256GB each and put them in a RAID 10 :P

dont ever to use RAID 0 as storage

mine fail and all file gone.

Use RAID 0 as performance only, like for windows and games

Store your data at another HDD, and not raid HDD

thank u. that was very informative. 4 SSDs in a RAID 10 configuration sounds perfect. i had been mulling that for a while now just wasn't sure if it was technically do-able.
