    Anyone have opinions on whether to get the $800 raid card or do the OS X software raid option?

    Software implementation seems slower and more likely to `break'. Hardware also gives access to Raid 5.

    i'm not the best person for this

    but what from when i can tell is for RAID 1 it is not as necessary as it is just a mirror

    but if you can get it..i would...might want to go with scsi or another raid config one day if high end is your gig

    depends on what you need. What are you going to use the RAID for?

    hey anyone knows if I can make Raid 10 (0+1 actually) with four harddrives withouth the raid card (means software based)? Or do I need the raid card?
