Tags: NAS / RAID Video Hard Drives Storage Last response: April 7, 2011 11:29 PM in Storage Share pmrg April 6, 2011 2:09:27 PM Hi everyone first post in this forum Well I've been researching what would be the best equipment to use for a RAID5 to edit video so I was looking into: External enclosure with 4x HDD's but, my problem is what to choose bare in mind performance/price(not looking in spending 500$£+ ahah)!? I'm thinking in buying an Icy Dock MB561US-4SB-1 Quad Bay eSATA anyone has any experience with these? Connected to my onboard RAID(not sure about performance!?) Now my HDD system is: 160GB WD Raptor 10k RPMS SATA2 (system) + 1TB normal storage + NAS. I want to add the RAID + another drive to save my rendered files. Toughts please? thanks Pedro More about : buying raid setup video WyomingKnott a c 302 G Storage April 6, 2011 2:42:37 PM Take a look at FireWire2's recommendation in this thread: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/forum2.php?config=tom...

And you could always put the drives in one of these: http://www.addonics.com/products/raid_system/ae4rcs35ns...
