I'm looking for a new external HDD, has to have firewire 800, preferably USB too. I was looking the Lacie D2 quadra but the amount of reported failings is turning me off. On the dutch Apple site it has exclusively negative reviews, and on many other sites the ratio to good/negative reviews is alarming, to say the least. Many people report it dying after a year and losing data. I was wondering if someone could suggest to me which brands are known to be most reliable?
