    Does anyone have a favorite source to purcase components in one of these eSata setups?
    Check this one out.

    I have my eyes set on this.

    It's portable, has USB2 and FireWire800 as well as eSATA...

      Their prices don't seem too bad for what they are offering. I added those pages to my bookmarks. Got to keep track of those. Thanks.

        Most of the time I try Newegg first, on the average their prices are fairly good and good customer service, the seagate drives I was using have gone up a few bucks lately, the Kingwin eSATA enclosures are about the same

          I used the external drives (Firewire 800 / USB 2.0) as a backup / archive drive. I do all the editing on SCSI RAID 0 (4 drives) internally. I found external drives a bit cranky when it comes to video editing. EDIUS will sometimes hang when it reads from external drives. Using RAID 0 drives eliminates all my problems.

            Like Deane Johnson I do this as an interest, not to earn a living. I have six usb2 drives connected - a mixture of captured dv data, completed avi edits, vob masters and a back up drive - each with on/off switches. I only switch them on when i need to access them. I have another usb2 drive (w/o on/off switch) permanently on. So far this setup has served its purpose. When I upgrade to a current generation pc and, possibly an AVCHD camera, I will specify e-sata. It does not seem necessary to do so yet.

              I like potatoes, you like potaatoes!

              That's what makes this whole electronic industry so fun, guys. We all have our favorites (and many learned minds with experience!). In my case, I have 12 WD 7200 drives, rotating them in removeable tray RAID pairs as I need them. They're powered by a 3-Ware controller, and I have never had a problem with any drive (thanks heavens!) in the 6 years of owning the drives. But hey, you know, that's just one man's experience! They handle HD really well - the only problem I have probably stems from an underpowered Power Supply, which was OK until I added on a power-hungry video board recently. I strongly suggest watching those power supply ratings, for they can cause multiple problems that are difficult to solve if you think it's the software or other hardware frailties! And Brandon's absolutely correct - heat is a killer. Each of my drive trays have individual internal fans to keep the drives as cool as possible with continuous use.

              Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

                  I am using Edius with the Edius program on my internal computer hard drive and my content files on an external hard drive.

                  The external hard drives I have been using are the Lacie 500 Gig USB 2.0/Firewire models, and I have been using the Firewire to feed them. I have had bad luck with the Lacies. Of the three I have, two have been in for warranty repair, and now all are out of warranty and two of the three are down again. I think I've had enough of Lacie and need to switch to Western Digital.


                  My question has to do with interface. Is USB 2.0 better for Edius, or is Firewire better? Or, does it make any difference? The USB 2.0 only models are much cheaper.

                  Thanks
                  I think firewire is better than USB for data handling and removal of the drive. THere shouldn't be any difference with USB 2 and firewire..

                  I have had 4 WD drives. 1 was NAS that didn't work at all. Of the remaining 3 one only worked after 2 weeks and they have been replaced by WD. So they are not much better in my experience. Bought a 1TB IOMEGA that died after 5 mins. Order cancelled no replacement stock. I also have a Lacie that locks up Windows so that needs re-formatting.
