Finally getting around to reformatting the RAID and adding the 5th drive. I raid striped it Raid 3, and get some pretty mean read/write speeds. All done with the AJA and are measured in MB/s:

1 GB file test:

DVCPRO HD 720p60 – 236 Read/238 Write
Uncompressed 10-bit 1080i HD – 316 Read/307 Write


On a side note. I have been contacted by the folks at CalDigit and I will be receiving a S2VR Duo to evaluate and review. I am anxiously awaiting its arrival and can’t wait to test it. While I am a big fan of G-Raids and FW800, the future of media storage seems to be SATA connections and from what I can tell, CalDigit is emerging as the leader in this arena. It’ll be nice to see how they compare to my G-Raids.
