    I've got an upcoming project and need about 2-4TB of storage space on my home setup. Up till now, I've been using whatever USB3 external drives production companies send me, but they drive me a bit crazy when they go to sleep each time I stop editing for 5-10 minutes. Also, I suspect USB3 is...

    Hi, Is it a good idea to have Avid MediaComposer on SSD but Avid MediaFiles on a HDD 5400rpm to potentially work on 4k footage ? Thank you

  • Using a SSD USB 3.0 external drive for performance

The CPUs are nearly idle and RAM is mostly unused, but the disk I/O queue is around 5 (generally speakjing...

  • Re: Will my iMac do the job?

    Hi, appreciate your input! So you're saying there is an adapter from thunderbolt to esata? When do they start shipping thunderbolt drives/raids, wouldn't that make more sense? Thanks Specs: MC 5.5.3, iMac 27", 16GB DDR3, OSX 10.6.8, 3.1 GHz Intel

  • Re: SSD Solid State hard drive & MC5 on 64bit OS vista/win7

    I'm with Cuervo- my SSD boot drive rocks. I have CS5 on that drive and the programs on that drive load up in seconds. ProTools & Media Composer-ditto! I can't say MC runs any faster because my media is on SATA & eSATA drives. However overall performance is significant in Windows 7 Pro...
