I have looked extensively at the tweakers page not too long ago and built myself a machine which has been working out great, but as time passed, I am rethinking my HDD decisions.
Basically I have 2x 3tb 7200rpm drives in RAID 0 - but I am wondering if I am better off using a 1tb SSD?
The RAID drive will almost always have half of it empty and the SSD would come very close to being full.
So what works out better? Maybe 2x 512GB ssds in RAID 0?
Please advise, thanks.
My personal new system has an Samsung 840 Pro drive (of course if buying today it would be an 850 Pro) for the OS/Application /Media Cache and a SM951 for the project/media drive. Then I would archive/backup to the antique hard drive technology.
I would see the vulnerability of raid0 SSD's as offering no advantage over a single disk so as above I would go with a single SSD for your media and then backup to your HDD's but in raid1 for redundancy.
