    I'm looking to buy a firewire 800 drive. I want to hear from ppl that been using drives for a while. I heard LaCie drives suck from 3 ppl, saying they die within a year. I also heard firewire 800 has problems with 10.3? Any help would help a lot. Thanks guys.

    Duff-Man says....10.3.x should be okay if you make sure you have the latest firmware installed. I have not personally heard anything like that about LaCie drives, but I would suggest you check out the drives from OtherWorld or Trans Intl (they are basically identical packages so just shop for price...both are quite reputable dealers)....I actually just ordered one today!..........oh yeah!

    Thanks duff-man, now if you could just bring me a beer that would be great!

    :update:
    Is there a drive that doesn't need powerport and still everything I need?
