    Default ex. HDD for new MBPr & FCPx - which one of the three?

    Hi guys,

    I just bought a MBPr for a month trip to South Africa. I need to bring at least one work project with me, total size (events+projects) already about 700 GB.
    So I need an external HDD and I want it to be USB powered. I will also be shooting and editing there so I figured I need more than 1 TB.

    My options: costs

    Two Hitachi Touro Mobile Pro 1 TB 2x 85 euro

    A WD My passport 2 TB 150 euro

    G-Tech 1 TB mini portable drive 2x 120 euro

    The WD does not have 7200 rpm so I figure I should drop this one?

    I am not sure if the hitachi has USAP? wich I picked up from other forums is neccesary/good for editing.

    In that case I should go for the G-Tech, wich will cost me about 70 euro more.

    What do you think?

    Sounds like you have already figured this one out your self.

    I use a WD 2Tb, it works ok with a home PC so long as I'm not pushing it too much but I wouldn't want you to go all that way and find it doesn't work for you with your lap top.
