RAID on the Cheap: Windows 7 Software RAID vs. inexpensive “fake RAID”
Check with the Experts at TechNet who use RAID on a much more frequent basis.

RAID often causes more issues than it solves. Especially for software RAID which is included on some motherboards and Windows 7.
Today there are 3 “General Types” of RAID
Software, Hybrid (some hardware with software checks), and Hardware.
Personally I think the Software and Hybrid are a dissipate of measure and misleading when claims of reliability are usually made. In most cases an effective backup plan is better than these. All too often the RAID software and/or Hybrid model actually cause a failure.
Or what is hypothetical to protect the classification in drive crashes and failures ends up being the cause of them. Hardware RAID is by far the best.
Hardware RAID is a physical hard drive controller that provides the drive interactions needed to perform a reliable redundant array.
Intel RAID controllers
Adaptec RAID controllers
Many low cost add-in hardware RAID controllers are really a Hybrid where some of the action is done by the hardware card and the rest (and often most important functions) are performed by the CPU of the classification using software RAID.
Why RAID is (usually) a Shocking Idea
Hope this helps.
