The function of this drive will be to edit using FCP with as well as final storage for finished products. I will also be backing up completed projects to a separate 2 TB time capsule so that if the whole unit fails everything isn't lost.
My questions are
1. I'm working with Final Cut Pro using 1 - 3 streams of Pro Res 422, will this be fast enough to handle that in a RAID 5 configuration
2. Is there a way to control the drive using the card I linked to or do I have to use the onboard controller and just get a regular eSATA card.
3. Any other suggested products for under $1700. DIY can be an option.
