If that's the case, shouldn't you have replaced thos X25s already? Single drives exceed the performance (esp on writes) of your R0 pairing.

Not for random writes they don't, especially small random writes. And writes to the system drive are normally small, random, and make up only a tiny proportion of the overall workload.

the X25 was much better at that than the competition....3 years ago.  Current drives smoke it.  And R0 doesn't increase IOPS anyway.  Two 830s (or 840 pros) would be a substantial improvement in performance.
