OWC QX2 Saves The Day!

10 / 10 / 2012


I’ve been really busy lately editing multiple video projects and during an edit, my OWC QX2 started beeping. My drives were still accessible, but I discovered when I opened the case that the 3rd hard drive in the array went bad. So I sent my drive in to OWC and they sent a replacement in around a week. Now I just popped in the brand new drive and it’s rebuilding as I type! Very clutch for me in crunchtime and gives me peace of mind with all my precious data.

BTW – I bought this for $499 right before the Thailand floods which made prices go up on all hard drives. Now it is $649 and that’s almost 2 years after I got mine! I would recommend this drive to all video editors looking for a balance of storage space, speed, and redundancy. eSata is fast enough for spinning drive RAIDs and the Thunderbolt RAIDs are really only sensible to use with expensive SSD drives (spend over 5 times as much).
