    2x Intel 80GB X25-M RAID0 or 1x Intel 160GB X25-M?

    I've just put an Intel 160 Gb SSD into a gateway computer, I got a package deal that included a USB connection to the drive and cloning software. Useless for me. I have recovery disks Vista 64 b and an upgrade to Win 7. I tried the cloning, got the same boot time about 1 Min 30 sec and the...

    SSD with RAID backup drive

    The raid volume is on two samsung Hd's. Seems there are a lot of things being said about SSD. I haven't made a backup or restore point, think I can put it on another hard drive. I do know that you always see set the bios to AHCI. If I use raid the controller needs the iastor.sys. I also saw...

    SSD with RAID backup drive

    The question is I still have the raid volume, can the raid volume be used as the backup device without hurting the ssd. Is trim in windows 7 used with the ssd when using the msahci.sys and trim is disabled when using the iastor.sys driver? In device manager I see two controllers, either two...

    HDD Help!

    I've got two Samsung hard drives, 500 GB in a raid array which I have just taken out of a computer and replaced with a solid-state disk. In the raid array they were getting a read of 274 Mb per second and a write of 230 Mb per second. Very good speeds but they didn't seem to help in the load...

    Latching Relay Wanted

    They also have stepper switches and solid-state devices. At this time I am not sure if the 12 V DC being supplied is from a battery or a power supply depending on the AC voltage being on. I am guessing you would like a set of contacts at the output to open or close the circuit. I continue...

    Intel 160G SSD

    I got cloning software with the disk, haven't installed it yet, will have to find out if it also formats, formatting with Vista will make it a C drive which is what I want so then I'll do the format then clone the SSD. The 2 raid disks are already gone and the SSD is in the bay. Just found...
