Thanks TeamSuperTramp. I want to create a home setup to edit 4K, 6K amongst other 1080p footage from various cameras (BlackMagic Pocket, Canon series). I do Indi film, commercials and corporate shoots. I'm thinking of getting the QNAP TVS-672XT 6-Bay NAS Enclosure and getting just four drives (Seagate IronWolf Pro 12TB NAS Internal Hard Drive) to start with?

Hello Devin !
What do you think about LaCie hard drives ?

I just received my G-Speed Shuttle 24 TB yesterday. The drive's construction is well made. And the speed of the drive while using Raid 5 is very fast in both Mac Mojave and Windows 10 with high 3 digital speeds for read and write. However, no documentation is included within the box. A very bad decision made by WD.

When I spoke to a WD salesperson before buying, I was told that you can format the drive in ExFat so it can be accessed by Mac and PC. * WRONG * According to G-Tech support, after I bought the drive, ExFat is not stable with RAID. Their suggestion was to keep the drive format as Mac Enhanced + Journaled. Then download Paragon's HFS+ software. I went to Paragon's website and could not purchase from there. I did a quick Google search and discovered you can download the Paragon HFS+ software for free on WD website. The WD tech support person was not aware of this fact. Once you do install the Paragon HFS+ software in Windows, you also must turn on the drive's Better Performance setting under Policies for the drive. Otherwise, the drive's write speed goes down to 94mb per seconds. Tech support was unaware of this fact either.

In conclusion, the G-Speed shuttle drive is well made and is very fast. For a hard drive that costs $2,000.00, I would however expect WD to include a simple laser printout discussing basic instructions within the box. I would have never known what format to use if I did not chat with tech support for hours. Furthermore, WD sales department is providing incorrect details on using ExFat. Remember, don't use ExFat or you may lose your data. Consider the drive, but be aware the communications from WD sales and WD tech support is not acceptable, IMO.

Hey man. Great video. I too have been using G-tech products for years and love them. That said I am about to buy approx 80TB of raid 5. Long story short I have been use to speaking with English-speaking G-tech presale s and tech support. Now I go to their site and all I see is a cold western digital site that has buried the G-tech line. The people that I eventually got to speak to (that I could barely understand) new nothing about video and sounded less like a specialty line one more like Microsoft. So now I am second guessing and looking at Lacie. Anyway, I am looking for advice as to if I should invest in a division of a large company that it feels like they are going to close or something. Thoughts anyone?

Here goes; all of the SSD drives I've had have become corrupted or have gone bad over the past several years, as well as a Toshiba 1TB portable external HDD that had a lot of non-redundant files I hadn't backed up. My gf, a professional graphic designer, wants to get me what she uses, a 4TB G-Tech HDD, but I was looking at a Samsung T5 SSD 1TB for the same price right now. I could be swayed to getting a G-Tech SSD, so what are my best arguments or should I just go with what she wants to get me? Despite my track record with SSDs, I'm still convinced they will hold data more securely than an HDD but I have to put a stop to dead SSDs. I appreciate any advice you can share. One thought I've had is this: is there a connection between the amount of RAM on a system I'm plugged into and the corruptability of an HDD/SSD? Also; does having to have a power source (HDDs) make them stronger partners to the computer than an SSD?

Great video! Thank you! I have a question:

I have a Intel 660p 1TB and a Samsung 970 Evo 1TB

Which one should I use for my OS and which one for 4k video editing?

Can I use the Intel 660p 1TB
to put my 4k Media and Projects and edit 4k with Premiere Pro ?

My PC:

i9 9900k

32GB Ram DDR4

Asus Dual RTX 2080 8GB

Motherboard: Asrock Z390 phantom gaming 4

This backup system looks extremely expensive but as long you have profit only the best is good enough. At the end of the day you gain money, you don't loose money.

What raid are you using in that 78tb enclosure? I assume you are using some type of raid? unraid? zfs? If you are using raid 0 shame on you!! I would still be using RED DRIVES for all of that.

Apple admitted that the "trash can" was "over designed" and not a good product. A good system lends itself to upgrading and the trash can didn't, You could tell that from looking too. I love that Apple is into design but if an Apple is using the same guts as other computers why pay more just to not be able to upgrade and be stuck in the Apple sandbox? I understand there is the software angle but Apple said they made mistakes there too. I hope Apple does well and hope its consumers become more demanding and stop treating everything Apple sells as something super.

Shooting 8K? LOL!!! You're only shooting 8K because of pseudo kudos! Why 'pseudo'? Well because in the real world, ya know, where sensible sane people live, they don’t give a shit about pixel count, all they care about is picture quality and colours. Most cinematographers worth their salt, those who actually know what they are talking about and properly understand cinematography and digital cinema would laugh at you shooting 8K. Because of your ego you’re shooting 6K above what they eye can realistically perceive. So, your workflow is increased, your drives have to be bigger, your render times are much longer and for what? To process resolution you really, REALLY don’t need. Dude this video proves my point. You are insane shooting 8K. Ok, I can just about buy someone shooting 6K for a 4K output but even then it’s way too much for the human eye. No-one is impressed when you tell them you’re shooting 8K (ok, maybe the stupid masses who are influenced by the marketing and who genuinely believe that more = better). 8K? Plain dumb!
