Question about LaCie 301294U 1TB Big Disk Extreme + with eSATA USB 2.0 Hard Drive
My 500 Big Disk just died.....power supply light flashes green ,instead of being on continuously , disk totally dead. Tried other PSU...same prob. Susspect small POWER Dist board in case (D2) . Can I get spare?? LaCie 301294U 1TB Big Disk Extreme + with eSATA USB 2.0 Hard Drive won't turn on, green light flickers
It's all about the interfaces.
The Quadra has four interfaces: • eSATA • FW 400 • FW 800 • USB 2.0
The triple has all but the eSATA interface listed above.
For doing video work you want a big drive with a fast interface. If you have eSATA available then that's the fastest. If you don't then you're just as well off to go with the triple interface. The FW 800 would be the next fastest, then the USB 2.0, then the FW 400.
Because of the way that data is transferred I believe that when doing video work you would be best served by the FW 400 instead of the USB 2.0 even though the USB is faster I don't believe it is a full duplex communication so the FW 400 is actually better for video.
