External Hardrive for HD footage

4 posts in this topic

Hey all! First post here and I am sure the question has been answered before but if any of you could help me that would be great. 

I am in search for an external hardrive to solely hold all my HD video media from my Nikon DSLR. I am editing on a mid 2012 Macbook Pro with a 2.9 GHz Intel Core i7 Processor. 1TB is all the storage I need (I think) and I would like something fast since I will need a quick return on the edit. What type of hardrive should I look for? Are any of moderate price?

Thanks

They're really all about the same honestly. I'd buy the one that looks nice to you and fits in the budget. I will say though that you need to be sure to back this drive up. If you're more paranoid you could get a dual-bay RAID enclosure that offers a little more redundancy. Better yet, get a NAS.

Thanks Brian! So you think I should edit off an external drive and back that up with an NAS?

Really depends on your workflow, but I'd go straight to the NAS if the transfer times work for you.
