My Desk At Work

This is where the magic happens.

MacPro 4 X 2.66GHZ
4 GIG RAM (I would like to upgrade to 8GB, After Effects slows down if I have to many layers in a 1080p Comp)

Dell 22" X 2

Xraid - 14x250GB (it is an older model) one fibre channel for each side

Canon XH A1 HD Camera (Incredible Camera)

    How are you hooking up our XRaid ? Via a Fibre card to the Mac Pro ?

  2. Pounet 73 months ago | reply

    There's no other way to hook it up. :)

    Yeah, I have a fibre channel card in my MacPro, dual channel.

    if only those were apple cinema displays . . . .

  5. Jon Lawrence 73 months ago | reply

    LOL, they are overrated, I have a 20" cinema display on my laptop machine, and it is not any better than the Dell displays. Don't get me wrong they look incredible aesthetically, but they are double the price.

    Looking good. Does the Xraid kick up much noise or is that only the Xserves that you want to stick in a closet somewhere?

  8. Jon Lawrence 72 months ago | reply

    It is really noisy, I am getting noise canceling headphones to see if that does the trick, otherwise I am going to have to figure out another solution.

    I own the XHa1 also. It's an incredible piece of machinery. In fact, it's probably the only thing from canon that I'll ever use.

  10. Jon Lawrence 72 months ago | reply

    David I agree, all of my SLR equipment is Nikon, but the XHA1 is an awesome camera.

    Nice setup, I'm jealous of the xraid. I need to get one of those for my photography. Is it really that noisy?

  12. Jon Lawrence 72 months ago | reply

    Yes indeed, it is actually quite distracting, I am looking for a solution to get it away from my desk. The problem is I need the fiber connection, so it can't go to far away, without getting expensive quick.

    A small rack cabinet might do the trick: www.xrackpro.com/

  14. Jon Lawrence 72 months ago | reply

    Thanks Graham, I will seriously look into that solution!

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called XH-A1 users, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

    regarding apple versus dell displays - the dell ones are half the price, but if you do have apple money to spend, get an eizo coloredge.
