I have just been sold a WD Caviar Green WDBAAY0010HNC which a sales assistant at PC World told me could replace my Seagate st3500320as.
The Western Digital has a transfer rate of up to 300 Megabytes per second, I cannot find what the transfer rate of the Seagate is.
I use my workstation for HD video editing can anyone help me before I open the packaging of the WD Caviar Green WDBAAY0010HNC.
Anyway, its only theoretical speed. If u would hook up 4 of them, maybe u would see the number.
Seagate will delivers high performance @105 MB/s sustained data rate, 32-MB cache buffer, so first few seconds u will see high speed and than it will go down to 40 - 60MB/sec - depends on the file sizes.
WOW, prices are up already! $149.99
Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache would be better than green.
How much difference will it make to my video editing if I use the WD Caviar drive as my system drive instead of the Seagate Barracuda?
I use Adobe Premiere Pro CS5, to edit HD video material from a Sony Z1 camera.
