I need a portable hard drive for my 15" Powerbook G4 (1.67GHz), and later a MacBook Pro. It has to have the following features (it will be used for storing photos during my time at photography school): - Bus-powered (so I can use it "in the field" where there's no access to AC power) - Firewire 800 (for faster speeds at home) - rugged (it won't be thrown around, but for photography use it will be taken in/out of my bag a lot, so it mustn't crack open because I handle it a lot etc.) - reliable - not too heavy or big Some other photographers recommended LaCie's rugged hard disk. It seems like a good candidate except for the following: - LaCie has (according to lots of postings I've read) a bad reputation for quality - the drives they use are by Hitachi. From what I've read many places this is a brand you want to stay away from if you're not fond of failing drives/lost data! - I don't particularly like the drive enclosure's design/color - the enclosure isn't really that small and portable Are there any good alternatives to this drive? I could live with the appearance of the enclosure, but of course LaCie only sells them with their crappy Hitachi drives. I'm also considering buying an external enclosure by itself, and choosing the hard drive which I want, but I can't find any suitable enclosure. Suggestions anyone?
