2nd sATA HD - AMILO 3438 - advice PLS

Postby jbbgabriel » Sat Jan 27, 2007 4:03 pm

Greetings

I'm thinking on buying this HDD:

Momentus 7200.1 SATA 1.5Gb/s 80-GB Hard Drive
http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?v ... cale=en-US

and install it as my main hard drive on my amilo 3438, and move the hard drive that came with my amilo 3438 to the second tray (5400rpm hard drive).

...now the questions :?:

1 - Is this going to make a significant improvement on my laptop perfomance? or is it better to buy another identical hard drive that came with my laptop and setup it as RAID?

2 - Anyone know where i can buy all the parts needed to install the second hard drive here in UK?

thx

RAID0 will be faster if you read large amounts of data continuously (e.g. not too small files with little fragmentation). Access times should be better with higher RPMs (so it will be faster if the head has to repositioned often).

You'll have to ask FSC.
