Internal or External Drive?
on Feb 8, 2006 at 4:23:57 pm

I'm gearing up to build a new box and I'm wondering about the different befefits of going with internal or external hard drives. My video drive (raid-0) will be between 500GB-1TB.

The G-Tech G-RAID really caught my eye, but does performace take a hit when using an external firewire drive vs. an internal one? Are there other considerations I should think about?

Thanks,
Chris

an internal SATA raid-0 will be faster than an external G-raid. But it won't be protable or allow you to connect it to a differetn machine. For DV editing, either solution is more than adequate.
