Hi Balistique, I’m using SSD for a system drive. The model I’m using is Corsair F120 . It’s capacity is 120GB and the transfer speed is 285mb/s read and 275mb/s write speed. I have to say that it is lightning fast. My windows loads for a 10 seconds after the BIOS check and all the softwares install times faster as well as launch time for any software. It gives great performance. I recommend everybody to get SSD for a system drive it really increases the speed dramatically.

If you have other questions please let me know.

regards Stefan

Well there i suggest you to use a raid 10 which means 4 HDD connected so for example if you have 4 disk x2TB each you will have 4TB + mirror so all your projects will be safe and your write/read speed will increase up to 150-200mb/s using this type of raid. SSDs are too expensive at this point and it will cost you a couple of thousands dollars to get a 1TB of SSD . Hope that helps.

regards Stefan

You could always have a second 100gb “current project” and scratch disk that’s an SSD .

If you have a big 5 TB drive, most of it is being used for storage most of the time.

I don’t have many individual projects that go over 100gb… the only ones that do are where the original footage is shot at HD / 4K and then converted to dpx sequences. But then I work pretty much exclusively on short form stuff.
