Just got my Maxtor One Touch Firewire Drive. So far I'm happy with the drive. It has a fan on it which I didn't really want but I have yet to hear the fan on it. So far I've copied 12 GB of data onto it from my iBook, done a full backup of my system (around 22GB) and am currently capturing DV video to it. Since my iBook only has one firewire port the video has to go through the firewire port on the hard drive, to the iBook and then back out the firewire port and onto the hard drive. So far Final Cut Express 2 hasn't hiccupped because of the drive and firewire not being able to keep up. This was one of my big concerns. Anyhow, so far so good. If you'd like to know anything more about this particualr drive let me know and I'll see what I can do. Edit: Hmmmm.... it works fine and all so far. However while I can get it to unmount from my iBook G4, getting it to remount tends to make the computer have a happy little Kernel Panic which I'm not too thrilled about. So I'm getting ahold of Maxtor to see what the situation is. EDIT (again): Maxtor has a driver on their website that I needed to install to get the drive to remount properly. I also had to extract the sit file with StuffIt 9.0 (I had 8.0.2 installed) otherwise the installer would fail. But now that I've installed the driver everything is peachy. Yay!
