Hi, I'm new to the forum so forgive me if my post is not completely relevant in the correct thread. I just recently purchased my second Apple computer (Mac Mini Late 2012) with the stock configuration of 2.3GHz and 1tb 5400 RPM HDD and 4gb ram. I have recently purchased a Samsung 840 Pro 256gb and it is being installed as a boot drive only while the conventional drive will be for data storage, but files will also be backed up externally. For my monitor, I'm running a Dell U2212HM 21.5 inch. The purpose of this Mini is to be used with Final Cut Pro X to edit my lifestyle vlogs for youtube. I've read through a lot of the forums and members have said that the Corsair (CMSX16GX3M2A1600C10) 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) is faster speed wise than the Crucial 16GB (2 x 8GB) 204-Pin SODIMM DDR3 PC3-12800 offering. If there is anyone who has this set up, please tell me your pros and cons. I have Crucial in my 13 inch MBP, but from what I read, members have rated it as the slowest between Corsair and Kingston. Which one will benefit me the most while editing video in Final Cut Pro X and pushing the Mini to its limits so that the Mini doesn't bottleneck? If it matters what camera in terms of file size etc in which I'm not sure myself, I will using a Canon 340 ELPH and Canon Vixia Mini X updates that have just been announced at CES 2014, but my current cameras are the 330 ELPH and Vixia Mini from last year. Thanks in advance.
