The only disadvantage is that if one drive fails, you lose all the data stored on both drives. And usually drives in Raid0 have a higher chance of failing than drives running on their own

RAID in terms of RAID 0 is really a misnomer as there is no redundancy in a stripe only configuration. The speed increase isn't worth doubling the likelihood of having a drive falkure take all the data with it. I do use RAID 1 on two desktops and RAID 5 on my workstation and am considering migrating to RAID 6 or 10.

I've been contemplating going RAID for quite some time but some people say it's not worth the bother and/or expense then others swear by it. I suppose you can't be sure one way or the other until you've actually tried it yourself ... A bit of a catch 22
