    Using the G-Raids 2...
    HVX on the FW400, 2 G-Raids in a row on the FW800...
    Flawless and reliable...
    One downside: the enclosures finishing seems a bit too "industrial" - my partner cut his fingers on one of the edges...
    And if IŽd buy now, IŽd probably get a Expresscard to eSATA adapter and buy the G-Sata drives....

    Questions about G-Drives" I have a G-Drive 250gig, it clicks with the flash of the LED when it is working. Does your do that? And is this normal? Just seem louder that I am used to.

    thanks

    Yes, that's exactly how Firewire works, unfortunately. But if everything works fine for yoiu; there's no problem; and you can get an expresscard FW adapter if you want a second FW bus (either 400 or 800).

    Knock on wood on this one... Have been using the cursed by everyone Lacie D2's for about 2 years and they all work fine. 3.5tb storage and still going strong. So I can only recommend them. But its my own personal experience!

    same here... sometimes I work in hotelrooms and render over night, better to have some earplugs ready... and tape for the insanely bright and blinking LED!

    Why is everyone adding really bright LEDs to their cases? Is this because of the PC modding trend...?
    All I want is a small glimmering indicator telling me, my HDD is on and busy...

    So if you are using the Express Card slot for the eSATA adapter, how do you read the P2 cards? Do you use the camera or P2 store connected to the computer via USB-2?

    we are using a glyph 062 1TB drive for editing striped for speed and using redundancy on a firmtek seritek sm2 expresscard style adapter. On the firmtek we use western digital cavier drives, out of the seagates and the other good drives we did lots of tests and found the caviers to be awsome. we have about 16 of them mirrored for storage in raid 1 and we have been using them with p2 footage from the hvx, and hpx and some dvx with the sony a1u as the sneak it in the club camera.

    i say go glyph, its a no brainer, their management software sucks and you should rely on disk utility but that for speed and the firmtek for backup is the way i think its good to go.

    i personally have two 230 gig Lacie's. They have worked very well for me, and are cost efficient, if you want one bigger than 300 hundred i believe they do carry larger hard drives. good luck!
