    Hello Cow team,

    I cant find a forum for storage / hard drive questions.
    Probably because Ive been staring at a screen too long today.
    BUT
    I do would like to know what folks experiences have been with;

    the R340XX-01 ROCSTOR 4 BAY STORAGE USB2/FW/FW800/ESAT

    Storage system.

    I am being recommended it (for speed and price reasons) but am unsure as it is a new product to me and this project is being edited in a very remote location….. if the drives can’t handle a lot of hard work on a very big series and decide to let me know about it – and I am in the middle of nowhere…

    So Rocstor? Reliable Workhorse? Good Bad Ugly?

    Please advise.

    Jenny

    Hello Jenny,

    Unfortunately, we have never heard of Rocstor. We do not have any opinion on them at all because we do not know them, their history, nor a single customer that uses them. That leaves us in the dark on the subject.

    Sorry.

    Best regards,

    Jenny,

    Ron was so excited by the name Rocstor that he forgot to mention one of the Cow’s best places for storage-related questions. That would be: https://forums.creativecow.net/raid

    [David Roth Weiss] “Ron was so excited by the name Rocstor…”

    Excited? Hard to get excited about something you have never heard of, David.

    Getting some exercise by jumping to conclusions, eh?

    ;o)

    I said that because you’re a rock star.

    I am flattered, I think. But seriously, you have to look elsewhere for someone who’s a rockstar, David. Rockstars go gold and platinum, while most of my life copper and silver were the metals with whom I was most acquainted.
