I'd like to suggest that the kind folks at Red consider helping us all out by making the Red Drive or a variant thereof that allows us to buy off-the-shelf SATA drives and pop them into trays for hot-swap. I'm wondering how many others on the forum support that idea?
This would make the Red Drive about 90% more affordable for me to use. It would also greatly simplify workflow for those of us who won't be able to afford multiple Red drives. I for instance could just bring drives with me for my shoots and not ever worry about whether I needed to stop shooting for prolonged periods to dump the footage to another drive.
I also mentioned in a related thread about RAM buffers that I think that it would be very wise to add a gig or two of RAM either internally, or built into the Red Drive enclosure that could work as a buffer to avoid damage to the drive during periods of excessive movement. I would imagine this would only add about 100-200 to the price, so it definitely has my vote. Anyone else feel like this is something important for Red to consider? (or maybe they already have:)
