After a bunch of exhaustive testing, we were left extremely impressed with the results from this SSD setup.
Under a RAID 0 level array, we managed to hit a maximum read speed of 660MB/s and even still, the average was only a little behind at a staggeringly awesome 652MB/s. There were a few issues with the minimum write speed in both RAID 5 and RAID 6 arrays and we're not entirely sure if that is normal or not, but the results were consistent.
One thing we did want to make note of is the fact that in our write tests, just about every RAID array configuration had a sudden drop in write speed at about the 22% mark. You'll see what we mean by looking above at one of the screenshots we took of a RAID 0 array. Now, it doesn't matter if we enable write caching or not, the same anomaly occurs. (If anybody has any ideas - please do let us know!)
Besides that, though, the results speak for themselves. And things will only get better as the development of Windows 7 improves. If you have some cash to spare and want an ultra high-end storage setup, you now know what to buy.
