Looking for compatible external drive for Ursa 12K: NVMe?

PostMon Nov 29, 2021 10:47 pm

Hi friends.
I was wanting to buy memory for my future Ursa 12K purchase; I see on some of the specs that the Ursa can be hooked up to a U.2 NVMe drive somehow, I am guessing through the Ursa Mini Recorder adapter. I have used the Samsung T5 with no problems on my 6k and 4k. But I hope to get a drive that no matter what I throw at it on the Ursa, it can handle it. If I wanted to shoot in a higher frame rate I don't want to be worrying if I will drop frames on my CFAST card, and so forth.
Can I get some recommendations of what you all use with the 12K? Is the NVME the fastest compatible media? If so, what do I look for when I shop for the right NVME hard drive? Or is CFAST the way to go?
I have consulted the recommended list but always wonder how up to date it is.

thanks for sharing what works for you (and any details you can spare).

Look at the tab on USB-C drives.


Thanks Ellory. I have seen this list, but do not see any lists of the NVME u2. drives that are stated to be compatible on the specs for the Ursa 12. I only see SSD drives. Am I missing something?
