The test results that Tweakers.net produced show that RAID 0 is far from obsolete in a desktop environment. Using RAID 0 is not 'ignorant', as Storage Review stated, and its former reputation deserves to be restored. Striping does not always increase performance (in certain situations it will actually be slower than a non-RAID setup), but in most situations it will yield a significant improvement in performance. It's not just our benchmark results that support this view: the majority of Tweakers.net readers who at one time or another tried striping, feel that the overall responsiveness of their computer improved when employing RAID 0.
