Any recommended HDD or e-HDD for HD recording? - Page 4

post #31 of 33
Here you go, this is from one of my drives before I put it in my RAID10.

Unfortunately I forgot to do write tests.

Nice. The MB speed goes down when it's near the end of a drive, right? But how near exactly? Let's say a 3TB HDD. Does the speed goes down when the HDD has about 1TB left? Or something like that.

Thanks for all of your help, guys. I've decided to stick with 720p recording since most PS3 games are in 720p anyways, so it's not worth it to spend more money on the capture card and HDDs just to record PS3 "upscaled" 1080p gameplay. Since I already have a HD recorder (Happuage HDPVR), I might as well use it.

I was looking into a capture card because my HD-PVR doesn't support HDMI and since my monitor doesn't have any component input (the connection that the HD-PVR only supports) and I hate playing on my old HD-TV. However, I've recently found out how to make the HD-PVR work with HDMI. I just need to buy certain equipment (HDMI splitter and HDMI to Component converter) - all cost $60 and plus a HDD that I also plan to get

Oh, by the way, the Avermedia capture card doesn't record your PC screen - it only records an another PC's screen. Sucks.

Yes. It's in the graph in the post right above yours.

Some people split their drives in two, using the first partition for recording, then archiving to the second one. This way you're always recording to the fastest part of the drive. If you don't do this, once you hit ~2.4TB you may not have enough sequential speed to record at a solid framerate.
