    AU$35 each?? I think you'll be lucky. Either that, or I'm moving over there... a portable HDD caddy with FW costs around £35 here.

    Can you get these in Aus? They are not great to look at but work well, are cheap and stackable. I've got a couple of these and they are good for the money.

    (UK price £23 == AUD 54 which is way more that the 35 target but is about as cheap as I have ever managed to get in the UK).

    Tere must be 100 to choose from

    They start at about $15 USD here. Shipping to AU will cost as much uless you buy a full case of maybe 50 units. Look at this site. www.pricewatch.com you type what you need in the search box and it returns a list of vendors supplying the part sorted by price. Many will ship overseas many won't. One hint. You likey do NOT want to deal with the vendoe offring the lowest price and Do read the reviews of each vendors.

    Edit: Just re-read you question. If you want firewire prices start at US$ 35. not 15.
