Harddrives for Video Editing on Linux

Filed under
Hardware

I like to shoot and edit video (on Debian GNU/Linux, of course on KDE, using the wonderful KDEnlive Video Editor), but in video editing, there is always a bottleneck. My wife and I recently purchased a Nikon D5100 camera which shoots fantastic video in hi-def! I was worried that my video editing computer hardware wouldn't be able to keep up with these large HD video files.*

With my last hardware refresh, I purchased a new Western Digital Caviar Green harddrive; the Green drives spin at a lower rate (5400 RPM) which I worried would impact my video editing performance: this drive was planned for long-term data storage only, not for live video editing.
