Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD1000CHTZ 1TB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Enterprise Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: its an enterprise spinning drive that does what it says. not ssd but doesnt have to worry about wearing out.

Cons: not an ssd

Overall Review: this is to balance the previous review, as the previous reviewer clearly mis represented the product and himself. buying this drive to put in a macbook is clearly the fault of the buyer and not of the drive , Newegg Clearly states that the drive is an Enterprise drive. Additionally you stated that your tech knowledge is (5) High, this clearly cant be the case since you had know idea what the form factor the raptor drives came in (drives that have been out for years). please make sure you know the product before buying it

definately has a place

ICY DOCK EZConvert Pro MB982SPR-2S Full Metal Dual 2.5" to 3.5" SATA 3Gbps SSD & HDD RAID Converter / Adapter/ Mounting Kit / Bracket (RAID 0, 1, BIG & JBOD PM)

Pros: 2 in 1 raid 1/0 adds the ability to do raid 10(01 actually) in places that only support 2x 3.5 HDDs

Cons: raid 0 has no speed benefit use software to make raid

Overall Review: So i have installed about 10 of these and they work great. if you can look past the speed issue with raid 0, these are great. i use these with 750xt to get the response time i need to make up for the raid 0 not increasing speed. if you are in a situation where you are limited to 3.5 and the amount of 3.5 drives you can use . definitely take a look at these. my hope is that if they sell enough they will be motivated to make another version that address that speed increase for raid 0
