I am looking to buy two drives to RAID.
(Edit: I understand that RAID0 doesn't fit the Redundant part of the acronym, but it is listed as a standard RAID level on Wikipedia.)
I'd like to create a RAID 0 array within windows disk management.
(Edit: For the purpose of increased performance, with the understanding of increased risk.)
My initial plan was to buy two WD Blue 1TB drives.
As I have researched I have found that in RAID arrays TLER is recommended to avoid drives being dropped when they take too long to report an error. On the other hand, several sources seem to vaguely imply that software based RAID arrays are more forgiving on the time out, and therefore a TLER enabled drive is not necessary. I cannot find any specific information on the Windows 8 Disk Management Stripe to confirm this in my specific case.
How important is TLER in Windows 8 Software RAID?
Should I purchase WD Blue drives, or make sure to find TLER enabled ones?
(the WD RE drives are a bit out of my price range, and the WD Red drives run at 4500rpm, which I'd like to avoid)
