My hard drive won't play audio wav files correctly and I want to find an external USB3 hard drive so I can edit on Sony Vegas pro 12. I can also gat 13 if needed. Should I be using RAID 0 or 1? Does anyone have success editing on a laptop with an external? Any recommendations on HDD that work would be appreciated. Thanx_Tony

Keep in mind that many external hard drives will never operate at the maximum USB3 speed. If you really want the best, build your own small external 2-drive case and load it with fast SSD drives in a RAID 0 configuration.

If you want a pre-made external I'd recommend Lacie.

I'm currently using the GTech G-Drive Thunderbolt/USB3.0. Working flawlessly and I'm using it for video as well. Playing HUGE files (100-150 GB each clip). You may be confused as far as Thunderbolt, but I'm running V13 via Bootcamp on the newest MacPro. Suuuuuuuper happy with this config. Just would love to see Sony finally take it native.

John's recommendation is a very good one, too. The G-Drives are pretty much designed for the power user and provide superb performance. You'll pay extra for that, obviously, but they are really good and I've heard also provide exceptional customer service (like Lacie).
