Hey im in the market for an external hardrive, i have read good things about lacie on MR, however most were recommending the D2 models. i would love one of these but the price and performance don't seem worth it. The Porsche seems like a better deal for the price because i have an iBook and would then not require firewire 800. So basically what separates the porsche from the d2, is one louder than the other. Etc, Etc. (Im in the market for the 250gig porsche) My needs for the drive are for photos, movies and nightly backups. Can i run iMovie projects of the drive or will there be a performance decrease and will daisy chaining the drive to my video camera import movies to the drive without a problem. Thanks in advance for your replies.
