Best Bang for buck 8 bay raid
on May 21, 2012 at 8:23:45 am


I'm looking to buy or build a 8 bay Raid to do HD video.

I am running a Macpro 3.32Quad-Core Intel Xeon on osx 10.6.8

I run a single Edit suite and my company is really just getting off the ground floor so I'm looking for something affordable that I can grow.

One of my major clients is a reoccurring project in which I need to play 3-4 angles of multiclip HD video in FCP so I am looking for throughput.

So Far I think I have decided that I want to go with a 8bay minisas enclosure running either raid5 or Raid6.

My first pick was Caldigit HD Element but unfortunately they are not selling them anymore.

Now I'm looking at :

Proavio EB800ms and possibly Sandigital TR8X+ but I'm a bit weary about the Sandigital.

My other options are building through pc-pitstop or Datoptic.

I have been searching up and down and I think I've hit a wall so any light someone could shine on this would be immensely appreciated.

Also is your opinion on a HighPoint RocketRAID 2722 card?

Thanks in advance.
