I did look at the reviews, but I wanted to know just how much better the WD was on its own, by comparison to two Maxtor’s in RAID-0. They person who is buying the hardware had a set amount he wanted to spend. Two Maxtor 30's were within that amount, but 2 WD's weren't. So with the advice you guys gave me earlier I picked him up a single WD 40 w/8MB cache.

Even if it was for a typical user, the question and answer would have been the same.
