I'm sure it will be. I'd say storage space won't be a problem. :)

Really;) I was in the Apple store on Saturday... bringing my son's iMac back in
again (needed another logic board... 3 one for us... luckily they turned it in
24 hours again) and I saw a TB external drive for around $400. Storage is coming
down in price and it's nice to see. I was thinking about setting up a server to
store our video footage on so that whoever wants to can just grab the shots they
want off it. My wife just purchased an 802.11n router... but, unfortunately,
it's not gigabit (as are the two towers that would be using the server the most).

What kind of backup system are you going to be using? I've been looking
at various options for backing up large quantities of data, and I'm
interested in what you've picked.

I'm going to mirror (5+1) everything for redundancy, for an effective
5TB of storage. I will not be versioning the media in any way, so any
accidental overwrites will be irreversible.

When and if clients need more backup safety than that, I'll buy a
second or third Xraid for versioned backup and leave that at raid 5.

Didn't someone just ask you what your backup system will be? If so then you
are merely responding - though why you felt the need to start a new thread
to do so may be questionable.

Did you ever get a Darth Tater? :)

RAID mirroring? That'll protect you from hardware failure, but it can
still leave your data hosed if the file system goes bad. What I'd do is
just set up two separate RAID 5 arrays, and then periodically (maybe
every night during low traffic periods) duplicate the contents of one to
the other via a file-level copy, after an automated file system check is
passed. Also provides protection against accidental deletion, as long as
you catch it before the next sync.

That's the approach we're leaning toward, anyway.

Sure. That has happened to me... uh, zero times in my Mac-using
lifetime :)


Yeah, I've been thinking about that too. I would prefer data
redundancy in this stage, though. I'll report back when I've decided.

Three logic board replacements??? I thought Macs were supposed to be

To have to have a component replaced that many times on a Mac is certainly
far, far from the norm - far enough where I would wonder if the user is
doing something stupid with their computer... covering it so it overheats,
getting water in it, or even being outright dishonest and pulling some scam.

2 replacements... 3 boards in total *for us* ... but the thing was originally a
refurb... it'd had a board put it before we got it.


As usual, Mr. IT teacher starts talking without knowing what he's talking about.
Problems with this unit were all over the Apple forums... Popular Mechanics even
wrote an article on it.

1) Who do you think is "Mr. IT teacher". Remember, not only have I never
claimed to be an IT teacher, Steve, I have corrected you on this very
mistake of yours in the past. You *still* lie about this and claim I stated
this in your every post. You are a liar.

2) Point to others who have needed so many replacements in such a short
time. I bet the number of people to do so is very small. The vast, vast
majority of people had no such problems.

3) You are the one who started accusing me of pushing scams ... if you
cannot take the heat get out of the fire. :)
