The USB zip drive is sloooow. It might just be me, but moving a 200Mb file onto a zip disk seemed to take forever, and the computer was completely unresponsive during the transfer (as in, i almost thought i had crashed!). Sorry, iomega zips are not my favourite product
Go for the firewire. The firewire adapter is an add-on that slots onto the back of the drive, so you're getting both USB and firewire. Please though, don't even consider the 100Mb drive!
Externals..... I love my Maxtor 'Fridge Buzz' 80Gb Firewire drive...... huge storage....
I'd like one of those new ultra fast firewire CD-RW, they can pretty much burn a disc in the same time it takes to copy 200Mb onto a zip drive.... one of these would pretty much finish off my use for zip drive!!! Alot of stuff I do, 200Mb isn't enough!! Plus Zip discs are still too expensive!!
I'd also like a DVD burner, for archiving, and so I can preview my DVD projects on consumer DVD players without having to send them to a mastering company first!!
I've been a very good boy!! I would like:
A bigger Firewire drive
An ultra fast firewire CD-RW
Oh and a TiBook 800 to make full use of these puppies!!
