Storage setu for video editing

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Here's the setup I'm planning to use:

Samsung 840 PRO Series SSD 256 GB (OS, software and games)
Samsung SSD 840 EVO Basic 1TB (media and project files)
Samsung SSD 840 EVO Basic 120GB (cache and export files)

+ automatic backups from the media/project drive using WD My Passport (external 2TB USB 3.0).

But I found one almost unused Samsung HD103UJ SATA2 1TB 7200rpm 32MB HDD from my "old PC stuff" box. Could this be used to replace one of the EVO drives or is it too slow? For example, will I get a big boost in speed if I use the 1TB EVO for media and project files compared to the 1TB HD103UJ?

You'll have faster transfers rates at the very least, if you're using the SSD's. From my experience you'll probably get around 50%or better, more transfer speed using the SSD than a HDD (even a SATA3 6Gbps) Can't say I know much about a three SSD monstrosity for video editing though (though if I had that kind of budget I'd probably use it too) I'm stuck with an SSD for the OS and programs and a couple Hitachi Deskstar SATA3 6Gbps 7200rpm HDD's for my editing and encoding needs with a Seagate Baracuda 7200 1TB 32MB SATA 2.

I think I will try the old 1TB HDD as a media drive before buying the 1TB SSD and get SSD's for OS and cache/export drives only.
