You shouldn't use a startup drive for your sessions if you can avoid it thus a fast external drive is good. "

 

It is said that it is way better

I feel your pain the MBPro is already half filled just from logic

Has anybody tried this setup yet? please share your experiences we (Zoso) would like to hear it... :D

 

I use both Firewire 800 and eSATA, they both work just fine for recording and playing back sessions from. eSATA is better if you are doing work to picture, but if you are just recording and playing back, Firewire 800 will do ya just fine.
