    I'm planning on getting these two items for my G4 sawtooth....to hold me out until i get my PB G5 :) then i'll just use the external enclosure with the notebook...but has anybody used these items? success stories / horror stories.....

    I'm mainly asking because i haven't purchased OWC brand stuff before... but they seem like a good company...seen them in just about every mac magazine....

    I can boot off one of the drives i stick in, right?

    I've purchased 5 drives from OWC (all 800, Deskstar 180 gig drives)

    out of the 5, one has crashed out --- but the other 4 are going REAL strong!

    I like them a lot and find them to be of good construction and solid speed

    I highly recommend them!
