Even with just two drives, the HornetTek X2 performs very well in both RAID 0 and RAID 1. The RAID 1 numbers are nearly identical to what we would expect from a single drive attached to the motherboards native SATA II port.


Write Tests

The write numbers are also respectable, but we would have liked to have seen the RAID 0 numbers a little higher at peak.
