Best video editing harddrive - UK available

Dec 1, 2012
Reaction score

I will be handling a lot of HD video footage. I edit on FCP7 on my MacBookPro (with thunderbolt).

I was wondering what the best - or a least a highly recommended - hard drive is for such work?

USB 3 or Thunderbolt are fine by me, 7200rpm is a must. I found a great one by Lacie - their rugged line - but it's only 5400rpm which was a real shame!

I've found a couple of others but nothing in the UK - so any tips and where to look or actual product recommendations would be great

Thanks in advance
