While shopping for new back up drives for the uTrack 24 units I am wondering if there are minimums as far as drive RPM you recommend. I am looking at the Toshiba Canvio drives, at 5400 rpm. We;ve been happily using 7200 rpm drives but they are getting harder to find. Any thoughts on this?
These are going to be used for recording national acts at concerts around the US. When you say ‘decent’ I get kind of scared. I need to buy 20 of them, and need the best / sturdiest/ durable and reliable I can find. We had issues last year with 5400 rpm drives while doing the New Orleans Jazz Festival that caused real failures and that is why we are shopping. we have had no issues with 7200 rpm drives (Western Digital or LaCie).
