    so i'm looking for a small, bus-powered external drive to keep my songs, photos, and parallels OSes on...i went on tigerdirect and looked at several:

    Fantom Titanium Mini 80 GB 5400 RPM

    Seagate Portable External Harddrive 100GB 5400 RPM

    Western Digital Passport 60 GB 5400 RPM

    Iomega Silver Edition 60 GB 4200 RPM

    i'm liking the Seagate. Anyone recommend any other of these or any others?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, I'm not familiar with the models you listed, but I can recommend the FireLite 80GB external firewire drive. It's nice and slim and the case has put up with a good amount of abuse so far. They're a bit pricey, but that might be because I bought it from the Apple store.
