  1. The fastest 2.5" HDD out there is WD's Velicoraptor line:

  2. Is that not a 3.5hdd? I need it to be bus powered
  3. Well i've ended up getting a Seagate Momentus XT 750GB, and i'll let people know how that goes for editing. I dont think the NAND on board will help with video files, but it may help with caches, photos and graphics...
  4. After doing a quick search on the Newegg site I saw there are some 10,000 rpm 2.5" drives available but they were SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) and not SATA. For my external drive I use a case with with a USB 3.0 connection and a 7200 rpm drive. I prefer WD over Seagate for external drives as I have had two large capacity Seagate drives fail within three months.

    Overlooked the FCP, will be connecting via firewire 800?
