    I just ordered my iMac 27" and i am planning to also get an external hard drive for storing video files for video editing. I also plan to store sound files for music production in this external hard drive.

    Does anyone recommend any drive out there? and Would a USB 3 be good enough for video-editing via an external?

    I found this:
    LaCie 3 TB Minimus Hard Disk USB 3.0 (302004) (Good Reviews)
    http://www.amazon.com/LaCie-Minimus...7?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1354292590&sr=1-7

    LaCie 1TB Rugged Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 External Hard Drive (Bad reviews)
    http://www.amazon.com/LaCie-Rugged-...?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1354632307&sr=1-15

    Or can someone recommend me an external hard drive for this purpose?
    Thanks,
    VR
