I now do my editing from a laptop (g4 powerbook) and need to buy an external drive. I have looked around at the usual websites (Maxtor, Seagate etc) and haven't found anything that seems to suit video editing. The best I have found so far is a Lacie 'Big Disk Extreme' - Raid 0, firewire 800 (my laptop has firewire 800).
The 320 gb one goes for $320. This seems to me the perfect video editing external drive but I have read some grumblings about Lacie's reliability.
Does anyone have any experience with Lacie or know of any other similar products from other manufacturers?
