    I'm sorry - this is yet another hard drive recommendation thread - so i'll make it short.

    Is this a good drive and a good price - $248 AU?
    Is it reliable?
    Are there any other hard drives in this price and storage range with both Firewire and USB?
    thanks in advance!

    I don't know how good of a deal that is. It seems like it's just a 250GB drive in a Rosewill case:

    You can get the case for cheaper on eBay or in other online stores, and drives are fairly inexpensive nowadays. I would say you should just buy the two components separately and put 'em together yourself. Not too hard to do.
