    The MP4,1 that I bought on eBay came with an Apple RAID card (a nice surprise as it was not mentioned).

    I was thinking of reselling it to recover some of my expenses as I only ever used OSX's software RAID 0 and was perfectly happy with the perfs.

    Any reason why I should keep that card? I know I can do RAID 5 with hardware parity computing but I'm not convinced I want to dedicate 3-4 HDD to a RAID set.

    I'd sell it. I only use OSX's software RAID, too.

    I'd sell it, but don't expect to get a lot from it.

    If only i could sell at Apple's price... My MP 4,1 would have become free ;-)

    I might sell it as a bundle with the 4 enterprise-class 1 TB HDDs that came with it.
