    I woudl perfer not to spend to much on them. But i would like them to have firewire. I would like them to look halfway decent and if at all possible i wold like them to match my iBook and iMac. :p

    So what ones do you all suggest??

    Thanks

    Many people suggest newegg as a source. They have plenty of options to look through.

    A good firewire enclosure should run you about $40-$50 unless you want it to look real fancy. I got a firewire enclosure at CompUSA for $55 and it's worked perfectly so far.

    I second the Rosewill case. I have the fw800 one sitting one my desk, blazing away at amazing speeds. :D It is a fantastic drive.

    I third the Rosewill... (can you third something). Anywho... I have the triple interface... FW400, FW800, and USB2.0. I'm using FW800 and it's blazing fast. It cost a little more than the rest, but the cooling and looks are outstanding.
