scoring to picture: fusiondrive?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,


I will have to buy a new computer in the next weeks. I worked with a quadcore macmini for 7 years without problems now, but troubles are piling up a bit. Especially when it comes down to video. It only works well if I put the video on the systemdrive. External 7200 drives USB2 do not work, be it the same one the project is on, or a dedicated video drive. It stutters and crackles.

So when I buy a new one, I am hesitating if a ssd is worth the money? Or is fusiondrive as good or even better? I wonder why they use 5400 for fusiondrive by the way....

So how are your experiences with fusiondrive?

And should the video run on that ssd? I don't want to do that manually each time for a project and then delete the video at the end of the project because otherwise the ssd is full in no time. Or do you do it in a completely other way?



Tell me, I love to learn.

An SSD is the way to go if you have the money, and they are worth the money. Most models aren't as expensive as they were 5 years ago. USB2 is slow. Connect your drive(s) either via Thunderbolt, USB3 or Firewire 800.
