    I bought two of these (before the $10 off, darn it!), and they are excellent drives. $85 for a fast 320GB drive? Excellent deal.

    I just ordered one of these and a miniStack. Now that I've figured out how to use iRecord with my cable box, I'll use this setup to record HD content. Thanks again for the discount code.

    I put three of these Seagate drives in my Mac Pro and they were smoothly.

    Isn't the Ministack PATA, though? Let me know if it's not, cause I could sure use more space for my Mini!

    Pretty sure it is...

    According to the specs on their website it is onlt PATA. "Any single* 3.5" Parallel ATA Hard Drive (Desktop size) ATA-6 compatible (>128GB Drive Support)"

    If anyone knows of a external enclosure that has FW interface and supports SATA drives that isn't terribly expensive, please post it.

    Um, yeah. :eek:

    Which is why I'll put the SATA into a spare enclosure and order a PATA drive. Ooops!

    Edit: was able to cancel the SATA, bought a PATA. Now trying to figure out if I can swing a SATA drive as well, as that's still a sweet deal.
