Hey guys, After 6 great years my 640gb g-tech external raid bit the dust. I have everything backed up, so at least the data is protected. I now have to think about what to replace it with for my video editing. Unfortunately the budget is pretty limited (trying to keep it under $200) so I can't go back to g-tech. I was thinking of getting a 4-bay external raid enclosure. I'm fairly new to this, so I was hoping to run my plan past you guys for feedback and recommendations: I'm planning to get a USB3 external enclosure with 4 bays. At first I'll only have 1 drive in it, but thinking a single 2-3 tb 7200rpm, just to get me back on my feet. I'll set this up as Raid 0. In another month or so, I'll pick up a second 2-3 tb drive, add that, and convert to Raid 1 for backup purposes. I'll continue to expand from there. Like I said, I'm fairly new to this, so suggestions, feedback, pointing out massive holes in my thinking, etc are all very much appreciated. I'd also love some brand/model suggestions. My system: 15" MBP with 2.6 GHZ i7 with 16gb of ram. Primary use is work in CS6 suite. Limited FCP 6.
