The 240GB Seagate 600 is currently available from Amazon for $193 (80 cents per GB).
Since this is a RAID article, we are going to focus on performance rather than features. For a more in-depth look at the Seagate 600 series feature set, I will refer you to Chris Ramseyer's extensive review of the Seagate 600 240GB .
Now let's see what kind of performance we can squeeze from a pair of Seagate's latest SSDs in RAID 0.
