I've been an iMovie 08 user in the past. Now I'm moving up to the newest version of Final Cut Studio. I'm a freak about making sure my stuff is backed up, but I hate backing up. So RAID 1 is my best friend. I'm really into the LaCie 2BigTriple hard drives. If I set this to "Safe" (hardware RAID 1) mode, and plug it in to a FW 800 port, will I be okay, or will the mirrored RAID slow it down too much? Right now I'm working with an SD MiniDV camcorder. I plan to step up to something like a HF100 in the future for HD. Actually, if the camera I choose supports it, I'll probably stick with 720 HD. What do you think? Thanks.
