    Need an external for my new iMac, right now 500GB FW800 drives can be had for between $180-$250.

    How soon before the big 1TB drives fall to this level?

    :eek: I'm not sure what store you're looking at for external drives, but I recently picked up a Western Digital MyBook 500GB harddrive for $99 at Office Depot.

    Crap...you said FW800 ones, mine is a USB 2.0, still though, you can't beat the price!

    I have seen FW400s near that level. Maybe in the Boxing Day sales.

    Buy a cheap FW800 enclosure from Hongkong via Ebay, and put your own drive of choice into it.
