Ok, so all you guys knocking the "software" RAID 0 on the Mac Mini server, take a look at this, while this isn't a comprehensive test or complete Apples to Apples (no pun intended) comparison you do get an idea of the speed of RAID 0 vs a respected SSD like the X25. Test Environment: 1)Intel SSD 160gb X25-M G2 installed on my Late 2009 i7 iMac with 8gb ram. 2)2x Stock Hitachi 7200rpm 500gb drives in RAID 0 on Mid 2010 Mac Mini Server 2.66ghz 4gb ram. Both computers were running client 10.6.4 with all the latest patches/updates. It appears the RAID has an advantage in the Write speeds while the SSD has a slight edge on the Read speeds. Note, as you can see the SSD is more predictable and the speeds are much more constant with less variability compared to the spinning RAID 0 discs. I didn't do random read test, but can tell you the SSD will blow away any spinning discs in that department. Either way I am quite satisfied in the speeds from the mini server raid setup and didn't have to sacrifice storage space and $$$ to get there.
