    I have a (simple) server @home, it is a FUJITSU Primergy Econel 100 S2, it is currently equipped with 2 Seagate Barracuda's 7200.10 (ST3160815AS) running in RAID 0 as I needed the space. I prefer to run it in RAID 1 so in case of a harddisk failure in the RAID configuration i would have a backup of all data on the 2nd drive.

    Now i was thinking to purchase 2 Samsung Spinpoint's F3 HD103SJ and set it them up in RAID 1, anyone has any experience with these drives? Do they work well in RAID configurations?
