Hi Folks,

 

I just bought an iMac 5K to be used primarily for my FCPX editing. (3.5 GHZ Intel Core i5, 32GB RAM, Graphics AMD Radeon R9 M290X 2048 MB)

 

I have no experience with external hard drives and would appreciate, very much, any input with your experiences in this area.  I need to use it for my editing so I do not bog down the Mac system.

 

Estimating that my production usage will require between 4-8 TB, what drive do you favor and why?

 

My research has me looking at Seagate, Western Digital, G-Raid and the Pegasus line.  

 

I appreciate any input from all of my esteemed friends on the forum!
