    I use one. The speeds are fine on FW800. The drive is a little noisier than i would like when the fan is running, but overall I'm very satisfied with the unit.

    Is this drive just 1-1TB drive or is it 500gb x2 raided? I just want to make sure and just want 1-1TB drive.

    Why do you say its lower quality and "faster"? The OWC has FW 800 and eSata as well. I was looking in to the Western Digital first but notice it has a fairly high failure rate based on user reviews.

    What hard drive brand is in the OWC, does anyone know?

    That was mostly directed at the OP, as he indicated he would use it at Firewire 800 as opposed to esata. I see that they both have the option.

    I just ordered the enclosure from OWC and ordered a seagate 1tb drive to install into it. :D
