i have the kt7 raid however only one drive i was thinking of geting another drive, however my friend's maxtor HD are having probles is there any on you would recommend.

PS right now i have a IBM 30 gb eide 7200rpm is it better to get another HD that is at the same rpms or is that negligible

yeah, deffinately get the same HD again.

With RAID 0, you will get the theoretical performance of twice your slowest hard drive, so you be wasting your current HD if you got anything worse and went for RAID.

get IBM 75GXP 7200rpm, IBM 60GXP 7200rpm or the Quantum Fireball AS 7200rpm.
The IBM is a winner cus of lower noice.
But the Quantum u could get in 10 GB´s and up

Sorry to say the 10GB, 15GB and 20GB of the IBM´s 75GXP has vanished somehow :C

But then IBM 60GXP has 20GB, 40GB etc.

Coldfusion: Sure you're right but when some original question is asked nobody has anything to say on it. So we just keep at the same stuff over and over.

I²C bus, TO3 case, P4 CPU.
