Default Re: Do Lacie Drives have the Oxford Chipset?

Hi sorry if this post is dead but i need some info from peeps in the know.

I need to buy an external drive to use with pt8 003 + macbook.

i have whittled it down to these two:

OWC mercury 1tb firewire 400 / 800 oxford chipset

http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/firew...W800_FW400_USB

Lacia Quadra 1tb fw400 fw800 possibly an oxford chipset (still awaiting their reply)

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWAX:IT


Glyph drives seem really expensive in the UK,

does anyone know or have any experience using either drive i have picked?

I have read that the lacia drives are good but mixed info on wheather they use the oxford chipset or not.


any info would be most appreciated,

i should mention that my 003 + macbook both have fw400 connections but i am down with using a 400 - 800 cable if needed for daisy chaining.

are there any limits to the size of the drive is 1TB appropriate? with all the recommendations surrounding partitions ?

never done this before so a little confuzzled,

many thanks for your help
