Anyways my questions asuw As others said, if you have backups than its not a big deal other than some time wasted reloading if a failure. BryanuNov 16, But it does not access files off both drives.

Well it seems that everyone here do not really promote raid 0 for gaming because it only effects the loading time.

A raid 1 is a mirror Just need to source for screws to secure. Is it worth it? So if you going with the assumption if one drive fails you loose all, well your chances are higher with your main drive failing because your hard drive is working twice as asux.

Asus G50V –

ASUS has a very large selection of current laptops, and it’s not unusual to see various models come and go with minor updates. Now they are some OLD games that wont run but you can always use dosbox for them.

Raid 1 does not provide any extra performance. We understand that the G50V-A1 we are reviewing should be available through the end ofbut other models will use the same basic design and change some of the components. Yes you do loose the express gate feature because as of now after I setup Raid 0 the express gate does not work but I have not done no research as of yet of re-installing it. Unfortunately, you don’t get direct access to any of those keys when numlock is on, so we actually prefer either doing away with the number keypad and putting a column with the missing keys on the right side, or else they just need to figure out a different arrangement in order to provide dedicated keys.


RangerXMLDec 2, Only drive 1 is looked at.

Yes to raid 0 or No to raid 0. It’s a heavier notebook, almost as large as most 17″ offerings, but the features, build quality, warranty, and accessories add up to a very good overall package. Forum members and moderators are responsible for their own posts.

Why not do RAID 1? The disadvantages is if one hard drive fails, both will not work and you’ll have to reinstall your OS and risk loosing ashs your data shouldn’t be a problem if you back up your data on a regular basis. Do you already have an account?
