    I've never heard of that company, so I can't speak of their reliability, but I can say that drive is expensive. I'd suggest the cheaper Seagate external over that.

    Never heard of it either, I would stay away from it. You can get a western digital for cheaper or about the same with firewire 800

    I have never used EZQuest. Although I have heard of them. They have been around for years now. I myself would go for a WD MyBook Pro. There solid.

    Why would you pay $50 more for the same capacity?

    I changed the link to the USB/FW400 drive which is actually cheaper.

    That other one was more expensive because it also had eSATA and FW800.

    At any rate, I'd pay $20 ($35 w/ the rebate...where did you get $50?) more for the same capacity regardless because those enclosures are solid, reliable, and look a lot nicer.

    I personally wouldn't go with WD, I haven't had good experiences with those drives. But any hard drive should work on a Mac, just format it to HFS format and it should work fine.
