    why would you? the optibay slot only supports sata2 so ur capped on bandwidth for one port..

    Early ones are SATA3+SATA2 later ones are dual SATA3.

    I don't think you'll see any real world differences over a single SSD. Benchmarks will show you how you're getting 900MB/s, but latency is still instantaneous and therefore 450MB/s will look just like 900

    Latency would actually be worse because of the software raid implementation, unless that bandwidth is really needed, a single disk could actually perform better in many areas.
