Iím planning to buy two external HD
one for my samples and one for my back up.( I have also two internal ones - one for recording audio and other one as a boot drive)
I Ďve read bunch of reviews and posts and still Iím not sure which way should I go.
From all Iíve read it seems to me that the most important issues is
whether should I buy enclosure and HD separately or buy it like it is from the store.
This has left me with 3.different choices
1) Go with the HD like Seagate Push button 300 GB or Maxtor One touch 300 GB
(Both firewire and USB)
or new Seagate Free Agent( USB, SATA) 320 GB ( this one is without power supply - donít know whether that is not an issue ? )
With those Iím pretty sure they would be all right for back up purposes but as far as running samples ( and possibly recording Iím not sure whether temperature and ďheat issues ď would not be a problem)
2) Second choice would be to go with HD like Glyph which are advertised as ďexternal storages for audio productionĒ.Iím not really sure whether they are really that good or it is just marketing strategy to promote them - they are pretty expensive - anybody is using those?
3)Go with enclosures.Lot of people doing music production is describing this as an ideal solution.Since Iím a newbie - I canít see all the advantages of this setup (besides the price) And mainly Iím not a technical geek and so Iím little worried how I would put it all together and about later stability.
I would really appreciate any feedback as far as which way you should go.
Iím stuck on this issue for a long time and canít come up with good answer.
Thanks for your time
