Hard drive option


Recommended Posts

I just purchased a G5 2.3 DP (PCI-X) it came with a 300GB HD and 2G ram.

I would like to add an additional HD (Seagate 1.5TB Barracuda 7200-11) for the music files and would like to know if my choice of HD will work well or is there another HD that is much more suited.



edit: decided to go with 2- Seagate Barracuda ES.2 1TB


Dual 2.3GHz G5 > 8GB ram > OS 10.5.8 > OCZ 60GB SSD + Barracuda ES2 1TB > Pure Music > iTunes > Lynx AES16 > Berkeley Alpha DAC V1 > Quicksilver V4 with KT-150 > Acoustat 6600 & DECCA ribbon tweeters DK30

and put in a small 120GB SSD drive for the OS. It is sooooo fast, it's like putting in 200Gb of RAM.


I had a few problems with the Seagates 1TB external drives, cause I suspected the power supply wall warts are a bit thin on the ground. I had to throw bth of them out, and replaced with WD book drives and they are fine, apart from going to sleep all the time.
