Re: filmscanners: scanning/photoshop workstation (long)

I like RAID10 , i.e. mirroring and striping, because you can still use 
cheap IDE RAID controllers but get similar reliability to a RAID5 array at 
the cost of one more cheap drive.

I've just built my current most powerful box with a RAID 10 array of four 
30 Gig drives , giving 60 Gig of reliable storage for 450 which is 
comparable to the cost of just one smaller SCSI disc.

You may realise I no longer regard a CD-R as _big_! I use 30 Gig drives in 
removable carriers as my main backup medium now - they cost only slightly 
more than a 1G Jaz cartridge...
