Is the SATA drive external? If it’s internal, it should be much cheaper, and faster, and would be the way to go in my opinion.
Otherwise, with the USB and Firewire, I’ve been using a Western Digital 500GB drive, and it has both. Working on a Firewire would be optimal in my opinion, the USB 2.0 works with DV, but fouls up pretty often for me when importing. Both do fine when editing/streaming video though.
With a Firewire or USB 2.0, however, rendering time is increased as well, but otherwise works great.
For an external drive, there are other options as well, but are more expensive.
Videomaker has a great article on external storage here:
Hope you find one!
PS. I recently got my 500GB drive for $130 at costco, great deal!
