This Suspend thing...it might be learning or the state you suspend your desk top in matters. But my music starts playing before my monitor is detected! 2 seconds and the music is playing!

Danrok you have got you get yourself one when you get the chance, these things are fun! ":O}

OK I Don't know how this happened or even that it could! I bought a second Corsair 90 gig and raided them though my Ausus P5Q motherboard's Sata II for "Speed raid."

After some messing about I got it working and installed Mint 13
Cinnamon 64 bit, virtually the same desktop set up as when I bench my single drive... results are Not As Expected! I can see where seek time might fall off, two drives after all, But this bench says my Raid sucks!

Still comes out of "Suspend" as fast as with one drive, boots about the same, maybe a little better not sure yet.

Somebody tell me this bench mark sucks...please? ":O}


Has anyone got some disk bench marks, Suggestions? I do know that there is a "In widoze" setup and that they ( Asus ) suggest you have three drives one with windoze to boot and configure the raided drives...simplicity itself hey! ":O}

There's a new article here on SSDs.
Solid-state revolution: in-depth on how SSDs really work | Ars Technica

Something on longevity here:
Solid-state revolution: in-depth on how SSDs really work | Ars Technica

Quote:
The specter of limited cell life looms over all NAND-based solid-state storage, but it's not necessarily a specter that most folks need worry about. The good news is that even the reduced number of program/erase cycles that a current-generation MLC SSD can bear are more than enough for most consumers. A solid-state drive purchased today should yield at least as much life as a spinning disk; because of the inevitable march of disk capacity, the majority of hard disk drives in consumer computers don't see much of a useful service life past five years, and numerous synthetic benchmarks give current-generation consumer SSDs at least 5 years of flawless service before any type of degradation sets in. Enterprise solid-state drives are a different matter, though—disks of any type in an enterprise setting are subjected to much tougher workloads than consumer disks, which is one major reason not to use consumer SSDs in the data center. Enterprise-grade SSDs, even ones based on MLC, are built to yield a much longer service life under much more stressful conditions than consumer drives.

These guys are freaking me out. On SSD

"Rather, a floating gate transistor creates a tiny cage (called the floating gate), and then encourages electrons to migrate into or out of that cage using a particular kind of quantum tunneling effect. The charge those electrons represent is permanently trapped inside the cage, regardless of whether or not the computer it's in is currently drawing power or not."

I knew all my HD needed was encoiurgement...hey I'm the same way! ":O}

Sounds like the electrons go through hell.

I just wanted a fast hard drive....I didn't want to enslave electrons, I blame Corsair for this...oh, and the French.
