After doing a thorough search, I thought I'd ask opinions on external HDD units as well as NAS. I'm looking to replace my 250GB LaCie d2 with a larger FW800 unit since I'm migrating to a new MP. The only LaCie that looks even remotely attractive is the enterprise class D2 Quadra enterprise drive The hesitation I have is I recently had a LaCie Hard Disk which bombed out after 4 months, and I'd rather not repeat the experience. My 250GB drive is 5 years old, and quality control may not be what it once was at LaCie (?) So, if anyone has a recommendation on an external HDD, it would be most welcome. The second question I have is for a NAS. A 1 or 2TB unit should be fine as a shared drive for my wife's computer and mine. FTP would be a benefit, but not necessary. I've read good things about the NetGear ReadyNAS Duo as well as the Western Digital ShareSpace and Iomega StorCenter. NAS (at home) is new to me, so any suggestions on enclosures, and drives would be a great help. Thanks.
