I still use my old G5 and a couple of Ciprico RAIDS as a kind of off-line storage. I have all of my machines networked through a Gigibit router. I have a PC running ProCoder software and I use the G5 as a Source/Target for the PC. I dump files from the MacPro to the G5 and then use the PC/Procoder to do compression while I continue to work on the MacPro. I usually need to export files in a streaming video format that only Procoder will encode to. I can do all of this off-line and not tie up the other machines. The Gigibit connections really speed things up.

Faster! Better! Cheaper!
Pick any two.
