I recently posted about 16GB of memory for my MBP which was since
delivered from OCW and will be installed next week.
Now I am looking to expand
my storage system as my current 5TB over multiple disks is near full.
looking for a FW solution and one that Pro Tools 10 will agree with. I followed avid's
guide on HD's and again came back to OCW and this one:http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/firewire/1394/USB/EliteAL/eSATA_FW800_FW400
I was about ready to order the 3GB version of this when I came upon
Also OCW and was thinking to then fill this with 2 x 3TB Seagate Barracuda
The latter would be a little more costly but give me
double the capacity which would be welcome as backups of the show I'm currently working on
already reached 500GB and I suspect there will be another 300 or so GB to add to that
before the summer is over amongst other projects that also eat space....
question I guess is if this is a good option and if the Barracuda disks are reliable or if
I should be looking at another solution?
Control room to be finished summer '12
