My System Specs

Default OWC 40gb SSD

Has anyone tried these SSDs?

OWC Mercury Extreme Pro Solid State Drive (SSD) Solutions - High Performance, Reliability, and Endurance

I want to get 2 40gb and raid 0 them for boot drive and 2 game. For the performance the price seems cheap.

Thanks

The OWC drives should perform better. Don't assume that the company is going under based on dangtx's nonsensical ramblings; I don't know of any reason to believe that will happen and I doubt that he does either.

Well you never know with new companies. . I was leaning for the OWC. Might as well take a chance. They look fast for RAID 0.

Thanks again
