    Hey, everyone I have not followed computer hardware, terms and what not for quite a while and was wondering if anyone could tell me specifically about raid, as well as sas/sata. All I know is that it is referring to hd's :confused:

    so raid basically in a sense it basically just copies/mirrors all of your data to multiple to drives for backup, and a faster and more reliable read of data?

    I plan on getting an external drive and was looking into getting a g-tech 500gb drive any suggestions or comments?

    here's the drive:

    Awesome drive!
    I use a couple of these for editing BIG projects that need to be done quick.
