    Will be getting a mac mini soon and replacing the internal with an ssd.

    For the external i'm thinking about getting a guardian maximus to store our photos etc. Im curious what drives people use in theirs ? I know OWC use Hitachi drives but would WD blacks be a good choice ?

    Im looking for the best performance since most of the data will be on these drives connected via firewire. Would I notice the speed increase of the blacks or is the firewire not fast enough to show any difference between these and the slower Hitachi's or even WD Greens ?

    Finally, what is the limit to amount of drives i can chain together with FW800 ?
