I'm still editing with PP CS6 on a MacPro Early 2009 desktop and using lots of external hard drives. I'm hoping to employ similar techniques when I have to move on either to another Mac or a PC. So, I'm curious what brand and type external hard drive do you use? I use G-Tech primarily.
I have been using G-Technology drives and RAID arrays since 2008 and they have been working without issues since then. On an older MACPro tower, I decided to go with eSATA connectivity and depending on the need and capacity, I would purchase something like a 3TB G-SAFE or G-Speed ES 4 drive arrays formatted for eFAT and any flavor of RAID from RAID 0, 1, 5 or 10.
