    I have a iMac and Macbook pro, mainly using it for wedding photo and wedding video.
    Using iMovie, Finalcut express and Adobe photoshop.
    I looked into G-Safe but found out the available capacity is only 50% of the whole drive.
    Need to have a safe but fairly fast speed for HDV and lightroom.
    any suggestion?
    :confused:

    If you are shooting HDV, a FireWire drive will get the job done.
    For RAID on a iMac, there are not much of options.
    You can use stardom deck DR4, builtin RAID 5 but the speed is around 70 MB/s but if you use SATA, you should be able to get 220MB/s
    For the MacBook Pro, you can use the same solution with a express34 SATA card. You do not need a express34 RAID card. The RAID engine is builtin.
    you can find product demo video here

    I saw this product at NAB and was impressed.
