I've had a browse through the forum, and found some material relating to this topic, but I'm looking for a definitive as possible answer to this.
I've just left the company I used to work for, and I've begun to set up a small editing suite at home for freelance work. I've always had engineers build me workstations in the past, so I'm a little lost. I, so far, have the follwing hardware:
iMac 27" (late 2012)
1 x 1tb internal 7200rpm drive
1 x 4tb Lacie Raid 0 Thunderbolt drive
I'm thinking about going for the classic 3 drive structure: 1.) Internal drive for apps, 2.) 1 x drive for media, and 3.) 1 x drive for previews, cache et al.
My question then, finally, is can I use these Thunderbolt Raid 0 drives as my drives 2.) and 3.)? I ran a speedtest on my current Lacie, and it was pretty impressive. I just don't want to go out and get another one to find that it's not up to the tasks I need it for above.
Thanks in advance for any of your help.

Yes use Lacie R0 as the media and cache and I suggest you do. Adding TB devices chained will raise the latency. That 1 Raid 0 will be more than fast enough for both.
