  1. Been ages since I`ve spent any real time here... Hi Continuum!!! Anyways.. For business clients with mission critical pc`s, I`ve always set them up with 2 7200 rpm hard drives in Raid 1 thru an intel chipset to minimize downtime from a hard drive crash.. Saved multiple customers from downtime on on more than one occasion. Then came along Intel SRT caching with a solid state drive. This also has worked well in a hard drive raid 1 config. Where is the industry/hardware at in 2018 regarding just running an intel Raid 1 with two ssd`s instead of 2 hard drives with an ssd cache? Is Trim still an issue? From the reading I`ve done off and on over the years, it seems the trim issue has never completely gone away? Aka, you can run 2 ssd in raid 1, but if you want to run trim commands to speed the ssd back up, you need to break the array, place one of the ssd`s in a system and format/let it trim, then reinstall in system and let the raid 1 rebuild it self. Repeat for other ssd drive.. Am I totally off base here??
  2. RE`s are certified to work in a raid environment with their timeout settings etc... Blacks are not, but more often than not work just fine... There is some hardware that they dont play well with, but I dont remember what anymore.. Google is your friend..
