Hi there! I am looking to buy an external hard drive, for backing up mainly but also to put my dvd collection on. I have a 15" AlPB with 80GB disk. I am looking to get a drive of 80GB - 160GB. I was looking at Olixir Mobile Data Vault which I read has very high G tolerance and is rugged. I am a IT consultant and the ability to throw the HD into my briefcase would be usefull but is not crucial. (www.olixir.com) I might have bought this already but I was concerned that it did not have FireWire 800 However, I did a bit more research (which I should have done first) and found that if ruggedness is not your prime concern then there are scores of alternatives. I am particularily impressed by the ability of some drives (eg NetDisk) to be network attached since I could plug it in to my Airport base station and it can act as off-site storage for my PB. (I know this will be slow which begs the question why I am worried about not having FW800, but it is versatile) Can you give me any pointers based on your experiences? Edit: I definitely want FW or USB even on a drive with Ethernet. Edit: I cannot find any other drives with Ethernet and USB / FW apart from the NetDisk. If you are aware of any please let me know.
