Hi, Guys. I own a LAcie 120 D2, considering getting another one for reliablity sake. What do you guys think about Firewire RAID? I'm using it for DV video production. Like to hear some experiences from other users.

Check out WiebeTech.com - they have lots of stuff for firewire RAID.

My two cents:
I had an external - and took it out and put it inside my G4 - way happier. But alas, you can't do that (I have a new AuBook too - so I've been thinking about this).

A thought if you do ALOT of video, get a FireWire 800 PC Card and connect it that way, YOU SHOULD SEE A SIGNIFICANT difference.
