Thunderbolt RAID or Thunderbolt SSD for video editing?

Now that I have Thunderbolt, I might as well use it.

Should I get a Thunderbolt RAID or Thunderbolt SSD?

I like the look of the G-Tech G-RAID, but a review claimed that Blackmagic found it reads at ~100MB/s, which, while faster than my current drive, isn't the fastest I've seen.

For instance, LaCie claim the Rugged drive reads at ~380MB/s.

Would it be better to buy the Rugged drive for video editing?

I also saw the LaCie Little Big Disk with SSDs in a RAID configuration, which reads at a whopping ~600MB/s.

Obviously the G-RAID has a lot more storage, but that's not a big deal as I could just use an SSD for current projects, and when I'm done, move them over to the hard drive I have right now.
