I'm vaguely aware of terms like RAID 0 and whatnot, but I don't know the specifics on a technical level and the conditions required. I want to replace the optical drive on my MBP and replace it with another SSD, but I want to maximize performance out of the transition, if there's anything out of it that I can benefit from other than added storage space. Quick research led me to RAID 0, which I understand essentially doubles the speed of your read/write at the risk of losing it all in the case that one of the harddrives fail. Before I get too deep into that, I was wondering what other benefits I can get out of a double SSD setup, if anything at all. I'm trying to make the most out of it. Second is if RAID 0 is all I can do on a home-usage level, are there certain conditions that need to be met? For example, do they both need to be the same size SSD or same manufacturer, etc.?
