EDIT: I changed the title after considering more fully what I'm hoping to learn... any feedback on how these effect the heat of an MBP, how noisy they are compared to standard HDD, and what impact it has on your battery life would be much appreciated! I know there are other threads on this topic but interested in feedback from anyone that has a MacBook Pro that is using this drive, particularly in RAID configuration. I have VERY limited knowledge about what RAID brings but all reading I've done suggests this configuration for the XT results in much faster read and write. Also interested in feedback from anyone on the real work implications for RAID configuration... if I understand correctly, the NAND portion of the drive would be setup in RAID0 which has no redundancy but that is fine because the data on the NAND is simply duplicate info from the HDD anyway. Thanks in advance for any feedback, including correcting any misunderstandings and sharing any experiences or suggestions.
