Hi All,

Sorry if this is a redundant post, I tried to search out similar threads but didn't have much success.

I am looking into purchasing the LaCie 12TB 4Big - http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/753279-REG/LaCie_301562U_12TB_4big_Qu... as well as their controller card - http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/604392-REG/LaCie_713113_4_Port_eSATA_...

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.

Thank you for all of your help,

Mark
