    Hey I won one of your videos as a door prize recently. It was at the NPVA meeting outside of Boston, Caleb & Julee.

    If you do not have eSATA built-in. The easy solution would be to go over to Best Buy and purchase a PNY PCIe SATA-II dual channel Raid controller for $51. It has four ports, 2 internal and 2 external eSATA. You can use any combination of two ports. It supports Raid 0, 1 or JBOD (just a bunch of drives). I would take a pair of eSATA drives and stripe them as raid 0 and be confident that your editing of 1440 x 1080 HQ material was a smooth edit. It should feel fast like DV used to. Be sure to ckeck your mainboard for a free PCIe slot first.
    Hi George,

    I'm glad the DVD found a good home. You have some good videographers in the Boston area. Yes, my mainboard has a open slot. Thanks for the help.
    All My Best,
