slower transfer rate than SATA. this is all.
You have no idea what you talking about..
Now lets think about this Logically, RAID1 "May" be slightly slower, only because it makes a copy of the File onto another HD but, RAID 0 and 5 Are definitly Not slower.
Spliting the data In half (RAID 0) and Splitting the Data into Thirds (RAID 5), Makes transfer, Read and write Alot faster because its doing it in smaller Pieces. If you say a single 7,200 RPM SATA Drive IS faster then then two 7,200 RPM SATA Drives in RAID 0, then your just Wrong.
If your talking about PATA RAID, then Yes it is Slower then SATA RAID, only because its an older Technology...
