    Do these exist?

    I am looking to get a Laptop drive and use it externally with a 2.5 inch enclouser, however I want firewire 800 compatability. FW800 is not really required, but I just want it for the speed.

    Thanks :)

    I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that 2.5" drives are a lot slower than 3.5" drives even at the same RPM, and therefore would not saturate a FW400 bus so having the additional speed of FW800 would not be seen.

    No 2.5" drive could keep up with FW 800. You're better off with simply FW400.
