    I think this quote from the Anandtech review makes the point very well. Not everyone is willing to accept it, but I'll present it here none the less.

    Personally I run a single Raptor 160 (dell spec'd) and I'm thrilled with the performance. Anything important is backed up to a RAID 5 array on a server I own, off-site backup on a webserver and \ or stored on removeable media (cd\dvd\usb).
