    Is this for a mobile video editing setup?
    Working under that assumption:

    If you give more detail the recommendation could change.

    I would suggest a firewire enclosure from OWC and fit the disk you want in it.

    Gotcha, the Lacie drives are great (not sure how rugged, having never tested it but they seem to hold up just fine). Just be sure that the drive is 7200rpms.

    Cheers

    I LOVE this drive. It's rugged and has never let me down. I'm currently using it in Thailand right now.
