Potential problem with Seagate's Barracuda IV
As reported in our forum, there seem to be problems using the Seagate Barracuda IV properly in a RAID-0 array. The speed advantage should be almost zero.
We do not want to advise anyone against this otherwise very good hard drive, but you should have the dealer assure you that there will be no problems when using it in a RAID-0 configuration. At least until this matter has been resolved. For everything else, check out this thread in our excellent forum.
