The SSDs go a bit faster, but in the most rarest situations, the average speed on those things are usually 60-70 MB/s.
How about the WD SE16's?
I have both 2xSE16's and 2x F1's in RAId 0 and the SE16's perform faster. Although, the F1's I have are 640GB (dual platter) and SE16's are single platter (320GB)....the average read is around 30MB faster.
