I want to configure a RAID 0 on my editing PC to use w/ my Multibridge Pro. I work with XDCAM, HDV and Motion Jpeg. Are there any hard drives out there anyone would recommend? I am partial to Seagate drives.

I was into buying seagate mostly myself, but lately I've been using the WD green model, which seems to perform better than the seagates and more silently, I actually get about 83 mb/sec read/write from a single 1Tb drive. I've read, that the blue series perform even better, so it looks like WD have stepped up their game, after years of trailing Seagate.

What number of disks are you interested on getting? Do you have a backup plan? What is your storage amount need? You may want to consider a different raid option if you can get more than 3 disks for redundancy. Raid-0 isn't going to offer any other benefit besides performance.
