question

I'd like to use this drive for video editing but it doesn't seem to have a cool fan. Has that been a problem for any video editors?
Asked by: Agi F.
The Glyph Technologies 3TB Blackbox Pro 7200 rpm B&H # GLBBPR3000 has passive cooling and does not need a fan to operate. With speeds of up to 220 MB/s, it's well suited for video editing but if you are editing 4K footage with high bitrates, you may need to consider a faster editing drive like a RAID 0 array like the B&H # GLSRTB8ENT which offers speeds of up to 360 MB/s.
