oh thanks it seems the one i was looking at is horrible:(
That does seem to be the case (but it is only 1 opinion), on the other hand lots of people seem to like G-Drives. I've got an old LaCie D2 (120GB Firewire only) that I've never had the slightest problem with, but the net is full of tales of woe with LaCie drives due to power supply failures. Whatever you decide on good luck.
