    Is there anyone using this external hard drive:

    I'm looking at getting this mainly for the external storage (backup for my Powerbook), but the covenience of a card reader and USB2 hub being built in is attractive too.

    If anyone has used or seen one of these in action I would appreciate what you think of the drive. This is well with in my budget for an external drive.

    I sort of doubt that you can use both the Firewire connection and the USB 2.0 hub at the same time, in which case you would have to use the USB 2.0 as your main connection, which is slow compared to Firewire.
