    Don't know about G Technology's track record, but you're getting a Travelstar in there and there's no power supply to break, so life should be good.

    i bought the 40gb version of the mini then installed the seagate momentous 100gb 5400rpm. i share it between my pc farm and my powerbook using macdrive from mediafour....

    stays rather kewl except under the heaviest loads.... very quiet all the time....

    i also bought the full size enclosure for a 3.5" drive but after being hamppered by the a/c adaptor i gave it to a buddy who doesn't need the portability....

    highly recommened.... i got mine from newegg when they used to have stock but it's been out of stock for months now. i think you can find them over at bhphoto.com.
