Question About External USB/Firewire HD's
I figured they'd be the same).Click to expand... And that will only get worse as drives get faster. i want an enclosure that supports USB2, USB1.1, and firewire, preferably... Job $194.35 for 30 days. have a peek here
The reason being that ALL enclosures that have both SATA and USB or FW connectors bridge the data from the drives to Firewire and then back to SATA. I also wonder how mobile that system would be (mobility is important to me).

I found that--at least in the technical specs for the enclosure and HDD--eSATA connections did not vary in speed depending on whether there was a FW or USB with it.

I've purchased 3 to which I attach (simple plug in situation - no case or screws) IDE drives that I'm buying from Best Buy, etc., when they come on sale (ie The USB pen-type drives have a niche, but they shouldn't be considered for mass storage and data transfer I think.

This means it is slower and less reliable. i hear USB2 does but not USB1... And all on a 300W power supply. I use both.
I had this enclosure. I have simply had no problems with video in or out, and my drives (and enclosures) have all performed reliably. I suppose I shouldn't have worried so much, but since it took the time to list compatible systems and didn't include OSX, I figured why risk it. how big (dimensions) are laptop HDs these days?
My last Vegas project involved 800GB of on-line storage. If the laptop does not have SATA for the optical drive then skip this idea and return to the external USB/Firewire idea. butskiMar 22, 2006, 1:29 AM Plan to install a seagate 200mg internal hard drive in a 3.5 inch aluminum external enclosure. No, theoretical max would be nearly 400MB/s.

Win98SE, WinME, Win2k and WinXP should all automatically detect either a USB or Firewire connected enclosure's chipset, and then detect the hard drive as being a device connected through the enclosure's
Your enclosure may use the 922, but if it's only USB 1.1 then it uses either the 911 or the 900, plus another chip for the USB function. 3) A 3.5 navigate here It's pretty much correct. Firewire. Should have thought that one through a little more.

Which is why I doubt there's any significant real world differences between using a single drive via eSATA or FW800. IOW, if I increase brightness, I will play some of the video to see if I like the brightness level. Once the video is in the computer, there is some rendering when you do transitions and titles and such, but it is fine as long as the sequence is not very

Does it really matter if it is running at 300 MB/s or slows down to 200MB/s running through a really bad bridge board -- both are still much higher than the Certainly a single hard drive couldn't approach that type of performance. Most 2.5 inch Firewire enclosures will have the option of running on Firewire power, but USB enclosures will not, because USB doesn't provide enough power. this contact form Thank You Quote More Direct link Report Direct link Report rmack350 wrote on 02/21/2004, 10:32 PM 1394a isn't quite as fast but it's fast enough.
