Storage/Hard Drive for video editing? startech?
on Aug 18, 2010 at 9:11:59 pm

I need an external hard drive for storing and editing video and I am weighing my options.

I am thinking of buying this enclosure and I am wondering if you guys can tell me if there's any reason I shouldn't get it or an alternative that's better.

StarTech.com 3.5in 4 Drive eSATA USB FireWire SATA RAID Enclosure - hard dr

(I know it doesn't have hot-swapping, but its 350 compared to similar 4 bay G-tech drives that are about 1200+ which I don't have. If this is a bad system, maybe I would just get a 2 TB G Tech external drive...)

inside I am planning on getting a 2TB hard drive 7200 rpms. any drive better than others? I'm thinking of a Western Digital 2TB WD20000CSRTL


I really don't know much about the technical aspect of video storage so your advice is highly appreciated!!!

Thank you,
Paul

Not exactly sure but that looks like $350 for the box without any drives. ( 0 x HD ) + 4 drives = ?

Hard drive array - 4 bays ( SATA-300 ) - 0 x HD - FireWire 800, Hi-Speed USB, Serial ATA-300, FireWire 400 (external)

I use 2 OWC Mercury Elite-AL Pro QX2's that have been great at a bargain price. And they can be used as Raid 0, 1, 5 & 10 . I have them set at Raid 5.
