Does anyone have one? Is it any good? Also is it good for media streaming? Thanks!
Too rich for my blood, but I assume 1TB of anything would have the latest interface, meaning quality media streaming to most devices.
I like Maxtor 1-touch drives, I have one myself, but it's the first gen
Just a two disk RAID 0/1 box ...
There are other companies from which to get the boxes and/or software (if you really need the backup software.)
Of course SATA RAID boxes are starting to show up, and other options and interfaces for storage.
And Lacie has already upped their Bigger Drive to 2TB.
Edit: at least Maxtor has upgraded to the SATA drives and the 924 chipset.
i don't have the exact model you mentioned but i do have a Maxtor one touch 200GB Firewire 800 edition and i am loving it so far. and it's not because of the "one touch" feature at all, which is just a bundled version of Dantz Retrospect. the keyword here being "Retro" as that software is really showing its age and the interface is the absolute worst. so i use Backup 3 instead. anyway, the reason i DO like the drive is because it has a Maxtor HD inside, which i've always had good luck with in desktops etc. Lacie, on the other hand, uses Western Digital inside which IMHO are the worst drives in existence. i say this because just about every WD drive i have ever owned has crapped out on me, in some cases taking many GBs of important data along with it. ironically, that need of a backup solution is what made me purchase a Lacie FW drive to begin with. it lasted just over 6 months before it one day just ate the dust. it was sort of an emergency so i pryed it open to remove the drive and sure enough, Western Digital inside. i will never buy Lacie or Western Digital again. i'm Maxtor and Seagate all the way these days.
