Is raid worth it?

Hmmm. Can you afford 4 x SCSI drives?

I can't. I could afford 4 x IDE drives though. IS RAID worth it?

Depends on the array and your needs.

RAID 0 is definitely worth it. RAID 0, not really, at least not for the home user. RAID 1+0 isn't really worth it either for the home user, IMHO.

You guys should check out this months edition of Maximum PC and see what they have to say about SCSI. They think it's a joke for the home user.

I think RAID is somewhat a joke for a home user also, unless you are using it for some benefits. I use it, but I don't use it to it's full potential.
