    Review

    Is there a newer review of Raptors in RAID-0 than the old one on Anandtech?

    I've been using 2 74Gb Raptors in RAID 0 for 4or5 years now. I get about 120Mb/s.

    I can't say about Vista or Windows 7 as I'm still using XP. Not sure why there is so much difference between the burst rate ?

    Re: Review

    Cheers guys, think what I'm gonna do tho is just take out my existing raptor with XP on it and stick my spare in and stick w7 on that over the weekend, next step I think will be an SSD ~64Gb, the drive only has the OS/apps on it, games, swap, temp are on seperate drives so thats a lot of wasted space with 2xraptors in there just for that and not a huge performance increase..
