    couple questions....

    1. do firewire 800 drives see much of a speed increase in transfer speed? i know i've heard that because of the limited speed of the HD itself, it can't really saturate even fw400.... just curious if anyone has experience and can inform.

    2. what's a good place to get such a drive (external of course)... i am just kinda looking into how much more they are than the usual drive... and haven't even had much luck finding many options.

    Take recent FW800 test as an example...

    Of what, I don't know. But at least he ran a test and played with the darn things.
