Mentioned earlier, the capacity per dollar quotient is prohibitive.
It's well worth it. When you are looking at nearly a $3000 budget, spending 10% off that on a SSD is well worth it. Harddrives have become a major bottleneck for high performance computers, and a raid array that will give you that performance is just as expensive.

Can't linger right this minute but I see that there are some use questions ...
1) I do game some but my tastes run to the fidelity of flight and driving sims more than anything else.
2) Video wrangling is a definite possibility but I haven't used my MkIV for it because my current machine can't really handle it.
One major issue right now is my computer's inability to even boot with more than one external HDD attached. In a perfect world, I'd like to be able to power up with:
- Three WD My Book 2TB HDDs
- Canon 9000 Printer
- Nikon V ED film scanner
- HP Flatbed Scanner
- Wacom Tablet
... all ready to rock.
Thank you all very much and thank you *sigh* for the PM
What do you mean it is not able to boot with all of those attached? Do you lack the ports available? Do you now does it just not have the power to support that many peripherals?
Also, I'm assuming most of those are USB, but if you could clarify what all of those peripherals require in terms of ports on the computer. (Firewire, esata, usb etc)
