    umm... you may want to read the review where it states that it blew up their firewire port... You should stick to USB2.0 if you possibly can.

    just out of curiosity... why should he stick to a USB 2.0? there are no great benefits over FW that USB has in reality, except that more computers have USB than FW... but anyways...

    If it cost less than $100 and can be powered by usb or firewire then yes I may look at it. I want to upgrade the hd in my MBP that is why I am looking at those external cases.

    Anyone can recommend me a good product?
