Currently shooting standard def video on my sony pd150.
Started out with a terabyte drive, put space is dissapearing at an alarming rate due to the amount of footage being imported. I would like a nice external drive that I can set up with a raid system.

Any links or recommendations?

Thanks.

I've seen several multi disk racks on eBay that are Raid -- try searching there. You'd add your own disks, of course, but I've seen 4 disk racks for a couple hundred dollars.

Man, you filled a Tb already? That is a lot of footage.

Thx much for the link!

The reason i filled up a terabyte is because I'm transfering/converting years of footage digitally.

Are Huge Systems good?

I'm expecting that they will be more expensive than the link you sent me below.

thx again!
