    Anyone know where to get this? Aside from the makers in Australia?

    Did some research and it appears that last year, Newegg.com had them under the name of Rosewill but a search on Newegg doesn't have this model anymore .. but i later found a link from Rosewill themselves to Newegg

    http://www.rosewill.com/product/product.aspx?productId=80

    Problem is, it needs to be shipped to Canada. Anyone know any Canadian distributors?

    For those that might also be interested, i also came across this as well:

    although i'd still prefer the Pleiades/Rosewill.

    I spoke to a rep at Rosewill and they said they've discontinued them. I believe they were the only ones that sold it to the end user. Too bad since it was an awesome drive. For more external drives that match the G5, I found a great article here:

    It also has more information about the Pleides enclosure from Macpower.

    Hope this helps. :)

    nice selection and very helpful link, much appreciated ..

    i still find the Rosewill/Pleiades to be the best of them, the link above for one @ $48 is something i'd be willing to pay for, but too bad in the US only.

    Hopefully more new stuff will come along : )
