Got a few matching ssd, is this possible? Replacing dlsd ofc.
Worth it if so?
look into everymac.com some Books have different ATA controllers on optical drives and HDDs (HDD ATA100 and ODD ATA66).
I once found this, you need two 1,8" SSDs http://skinflint.co.uk/delock-sata-22-pin-on-msata-with-raid-2-5-converter-62545-a1120168.html I guess though that because of the length (not the width) you will have to put it in th eoptical bay, because you will have to use the SATA-IDE adapter additionally to that.
I never tried this.
What about something like this Sata-IDE to fit it into the ATA100 bay? This adapter shouldn't take up any extra space that a standard Pata drive takes, used with the adapter you linked as well.
it is only 9 or 9,5cm high and the adapter is 10 or more as far as I know, you would probably get it fit before the raid adapter, but you will not get the case closed. But I heard someone using a dremel to fit it in...
RAID0 is a bad idea, anyway. I had a work colleague who bought a Sony twin HDD notebook that had RAID0 enabled as a factory default. After it corrupted for the second time I disabled the RAID for him. With mechanical drives, the speed boost from RAID0ing is negligeable compared with a single SSD as seek time is the most noticeable factor.
hehe, and with a 2xSSD RAID0 one would probably get more speed that he wouldn't notice, since the single SSD was already fast with access times.

Anything past 200mb or so read there's no real noticeable difference to me, unless I'm transferring large/multiple files. I'm usually rolling with 500mb reads in most of my systems.
