Just got a brand new 24" iMac last Friday. So far, so awesome. Now I need to get a scratch drive and a back-up system in place. (I'm gonna be using this to edit mostly HDV, some DV, footage in FCE). As for the scratch drive: G-RAID2 1TB for $479 http://www.g-technology.com/Products/G-RAID2.cfm -=OR=- Iomega Ultramax Pro 1.5TB for $474 http://www.iomega.com/direct/product...=1210289485782 ??? What's, y'know, the difference?? Both have FW800. About the same price (at least from the manufacturer). Both "look nice" to me (I know that is superficial). One is .5TB bigger. I'm new to this stuff; trying to learn as much as possible before throwing the money around. Also, am I correct in understanding that RAID-0 is OK for a scratch drive, and that you don't really need any redundancy or back-ups of your scratch drive (since you can recapture if need be)?? I'll be using FCE, which I haven't even installed yet--so I apologize if this next question is stupid and noobish: Let's say there was a scratch drive failure. Can your FCE project file correctly identify re-captured scratch files and actually let you continue your edits??--Re-build itself, so to speak? That being the case, do I just need back-up for my internal HDD? I have a 320GB internal. So would a 500GB Time Capsule be sufficient? Thanks.
