Good review by Seth and certainly the best use of the Velociraptor drives that I've ever seen. I won't be investing in one after looking at the PcMark 7 scores for gaming and starting applications but for video editing pros this seems like a good compromise over stuffing the desktop full of HDD's in a raid.
WHen I can afford to upgrade my Mac Book Pro to one of the current models with Thunderbolt, this will be one of the first accessories I'll buy for it. The price is alittle high but worth it for the performance.
I like that it come with a 5 year warranty
Wish the Mac Raid 0 configuration had more detailed data like the other benchmarks. The general summary of 2x speed of benchmarks with the Raid 1 configuration is good news. Running this (current street value) $700 storage device in Raid 1 would be a huge waste of money. Only the performance from the combination of Raid 0, 10,000 rpm drives, and dual thunderbolt 6gbs interfaces makes the cost/benefit ratio rational.
