Here for the gear
 

Storage

I am looking for a harddrive that has atleast 500 gbs( preferably a Tb) of space that I can house my itunes library and run logic and protools sessions off with FW800 as wel as back up documentation. Im not going to be running vsts or anything like that off the drive. I want to know what people are using that have similar needs. My issue is is that I only have about 150 bucks to budget and I have read online a lot of issues iwth drives crapping out when using them in this manner( are these kind of issues more common on Windows OS?). I am going to be running OS 10.6 Snow Leopard with logic 9. I want something that is going to be reliable. Reliability is of top priority.

A example is with my fathers WD MY Book studio which he has backing up against his RAID system( a mac on that has crapped out twice). That drive has just recently fried and now won't turn on for what he thinks is no reason.

I've heard a lot of good stuff about OWC drives. And they have reallygood prices.

Performance Upgrades; FireWire USB SATA Storage; Memory, more at OWC

have bought from them and built my own as well.
If you have a compusa local to you, you can probably put together one, go with a SATA drive and kit, get the fastest speed you can afford to purchase.
Cases are only about $30, believe.
