    What is the best most stable Hard Drive for video editing in Final Cut
    Pro?


    Looking for 1 TB under $1,000 that is fast and won't have drive failures
    while editing video.

    I've heard bad news about Lacie, Western Digital, and Buffalo Terabyte
    failing after 6 months from many people.


    I need a drive that will last for video editing!

    Drive failures are a way of life unless one coughs up the cash and buys into
    enterprise level storage solutions.

    With such a low budget you should think about how to reduce the problem of a
    drive failure. I'd have a second drive to back up the important project
    information i.e. a big firewire drive. A RAID with suitable performance for
    video editing that provides fault tolerance will not come in at your budget
    level.

    I tend to use Western Digital drives but have also uses Seagate quite a lot.
    They all fail eventually but to increase their life keep them cool...

    I have all Lacie and they have worked great. No problems for 3 years! I
    don't know current price on a terrabyte, but I just got a 320 gig for
    around $250. I've had problems with Maxtor and I have a Fantom drive
    that the fan does not go off when not in use.
