For xmas, I recieved a 300 GB firewire 400/usb 2.0 maxtor 1touch II drive. However, I am about to return it and buy the LaCie big disk 500 GB from the Apple store. The price difference is only 90 dollars. At first I thought this was a no brainer, because in Macworld, they had given LaCie the best reviews. However, at apple.com, there were more people that gave this drive bad ratings than good ratings, saying that it crashed...etc...please help me. I am looking for a good external hard drive that is well supported by apple. It should preferably be greater than 300 GB and not more than $400. Is this lacie not a good drive?? http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APP...YJ1mV9GWoK/3.SLID?mco=D78C1D23&nplm=T9567LL/B read the reviews...and tell me whether you disagree...anywho, I will be going to the apple store today to ask a "genius" about this drive...so I need a reply within the next 15 mins!!!
