Metal Gear Firewire/USB2 3.5" Drive Enclosure

Has anyone used this drive enclosure? I can't find a manufacturer website and none of the specs I've found mention the firewire chipset or whether it can handle large (160+ gig) drives. I'd really like to get this for my extra 160 gig drive but I'd hate to find out it has a slow firewire chipset or can't handle the large drive.

Yeah, I know there are lots of cases with full specs listed but this one looks better than most.

Compgeeks responded to my inquiry. Guess I won't be getting a Metal Gear box.

Quote:
1) The FireWire PHY chip is made by Agere, while the IDE functions are handled by a Prolific PL-3507 chipset.
2) From what information we have, the Metal Gear Box will not permit the use of hard drive capacities greater than 128GB.
