Default Which hard drives are working

Hi
I am looking for another external hard drive (case & Drive) so I can offer the clients a backup if they are willing to pay for it.
I am using the Digidrive because I had trouble with a few others before I knew about the proper specs ( 7200, Oxford 911 chipset).
I would be inrerested in knowqing what brands are working well as I do not want to spend as much as I did for the Digidrive.
Please only post if your sydtems work as I susprct a lot of the OSX PT6?? are related to this issue. So far I know about the Firedock.
Thanks in advance

Jimi

I highly recommend Transintl's external FW drives. Basically the same drives OWC offers...

Aqui!

Wow, i just clicked that link.

So the 922's are here finally i see.

Anybody using them yet ?

How much more throughput than the 911's in realworld use ?

I'd also check out the Miglia drive cases. Built like a tank, great reliability. You can buy the cases in either a 1 or 2 HD capacity.

Forget about 911.

I just read the tests for 922 at barefeats and xlr8yourmac.

If you have a newer mac with FW800 go for the 922, it blows the 911 away.

I might just buy a FW800 PCI card for my older g4, that doesnt have fw800.

Hi,

I'm new to Mac, but based on some friends' advice, I bought a LaCie d2 firewire drive (160Gb), you can find out more at www.lacie.com . The drive is working very well, no problems at all with PT 6.0.1 w/ OS X 10.2.6 .

LaCie D2 120G - stellar performance, not a single problem to date, pretty quiet as well. Extremely happy with it.
