    I'm looking for a small(probably 320GB) portable hardrive, preferably with firewire 800. I'm a big fan of Seagate drives so I've been looking at the GoFlex and then getting the firewire 800 upgrade kit. Then I also started looking at the LaCie rugged with triple interface. Theres only about a $10-$20 price difference between both option for 320GB drives, the LaCie being more expensive. Any opinions on these 2 drives?

    I have 320GB LaCie rugged (with USB though) and it's been working fine. I can gladly recommend it. It's nice because it's well protected allowing me to carry it around without worrying so much

    Lacie's 500g HDs are great. I've been using Lacie for quite some time and it works perfectly for me.
