we need a DAS for a Mac pro 2009, we use ProRes 422 HQ 50p, and need aprox 30tb.What hdd you recommend? we are almost convinced the hitachi ultrastar 7k3000 HUA723020ALA640
the first option is RR2744, is cheap and seems to have quite acceptable performance for our needs. but is not a hardware raid. also if we find we need more ej220 hdd at an attractive price, and have 8 hdd per port. http://barefeats.com/hard141.html
today we use a rr2314, originally from g-tech, with 17 hdd, for DVCPRO HD works fine but not with ProRes
you speak very well of the ARC-1882, but cost more than doubled in Spain can not find them, and shipping costs and customs are another $ 200 more. not rule it out.
As you can see we're a little lost, and too limited to be in Spain
Thanks and sorry for the English (google translator)
