FireStore dte (no more tape?)

Does anyone use this?
http://www.focusinfo.com/products/firestore/fs-1.html

Seems like a great idea, considering its price. I know there is another model which attaches to your camera and has removable fw drive. You can also daisy chain that model, but its twice the price of the desktop version.

For powered location shoots, seems like this with a tb drive would be great. No tape to worry about. I suppose, in analyzing the situation, you DO lose that root original media archive that saved tapes provide, but is that a big enough con to offset the advantage of no more all day fcp capture sessions?

Im thinking that you can still use tape whenever you want, whether you have the firestore going or not. Im really just curious if anyone uses it or knows if it sucks or not. Im strongly considering getting one.

I've had an FS-1 for some time now. Based on my experience, I'd recommend using tape for a backup. On occasion, the video recorded to the external FW drive has been corrupted. Usually works OK, but not always.

There is a whole section in this forum devoted to these puppies....check it out for lots more info.

Heath: I've moved your post to the correct forum. As you've
probably found out we have 3 forums on DTE devices. A general
one, this firestore forum and the MCE one.
