Here are the guidelines from the TriCaster User Guide:

  • All else being equal, larger drives are normally faster – try to use 1TB drives or above
  • Use SATA 3.0GB/s drives with rotational speed of 7200 R.P.M. (or better)
  • Drives should have a larger onboard cache (32Mb or better is recommended)

Obviously any changes to the internal 3TB drive are not recommended, as this will change the factory hardware configuration and will invalidate the warranty.


So long as the above guidelines are adhered to you should be fine, however we would always suggest testing any drive before putting it into production use.
