no way in hell can you get "ultra-fast data transfer rates" using two HDDs no matter what RAID conf you use. you will have to daisy chain lot of them to get the ultrafast thingy you are talking about. Lacie shows you honest marketing using daisy chaining on their website which max's out at 800MB/s using SSDs.
