RAID 1 is pretty much identical to a single drive, with the main drawback being that you're using 2 drives, but only getting one drive's worth of capacity. RAID 0 on the other hand, is pretty highly overrated outside of certain applications (A/V, large file handling, etc). Personally, I'm not sure I've seen anything happen 75% faster on my own system.
