    Here is the catch though, if you want to move all of the files to a single drive for storage, you could be there for hours trying to locate every little file.
    Also, can you edit 4-5 layers of 1920x1080 (not 1440x1080) clips with 3d pip applied to each clip in realtime with that one drive?
    Didn't think so.

      I use consolidate project and moves the files to an external sata drive for backup purpose. No need too look for the files. From the backup file i can render out to diffrent formats and make small changes When editing i have about 2 video clips on each hdd and its been working good for me. Havent tried any real project with 1920+1080 video files so cant say if that works.

        3 streams HDV editing with Edius is even possible on a notebook:
        (If you have a max of 3 cameras delivering HDV MPEG2-TS)

        (I am using a DELL notebook M1710
        T7600G [email protected], 4GB RAM, [email protected] Hitachi HDD)

        There are 2 external 2.5" SATA-HDDs @7200rpm (Seagate)
        connected via one Dawicontrol Adapter (DC300-ExpressCard to 2 x eSATA).

        The main thing:
        I suggest to capture only one camera per HDD !

        This means less seeking for the HDD.
        No need to find far separated blocks belonging to 3 different
        camera streams shot at the same time.

        As long as you keep each camera stream separate and defragged on 1 HDD,
        it becomes possible to keep data flow fast enough
        to have Edius decode these HDV-streams in realtime,
        CPU dependent.

        The maintained 50-60MB/s per drive are sufficient for HDV streams here,
        no need to build any array yet for me.

        My video studio fits in a pilot case, together with 1.6TB storage.

          This depends entirely on what sort of work you do. Three streams of native HDV (not HQ AVI) should be easy to work with but as soon as you add a number of stills, AVI HD Jumpbacks or any style of plugin (ProDad) it falls in a screaming heap, even in Edius which is probably the best multi-format NLE available.
          Any serious editing with HD files should be on a Raid and drives are so cheap security shouldn't be a problem.
