Hey Guys, I am a long time reader, 1st time poster. I wanted to post because I was in the market for a new external HD and used these forums to find which HD to buy. I ended up picking up a 750gb WD Caviar 7200rpm drive from newegg for 149.99. A good internal is only as good as its casing. I do a lot of video editing so firewire was a must. I ended up finding the icy dock MB559UEA-1S. It has USB 2.0 and FW400 compatibility and was on sale. After mail in rebate it came out to 44.99 on newegg and it is just fantastic. It's 1/2 the size of my LaCie D2, quiet, and cool. The best part is that you can hot swap drives, so the next time I see a great HD deal on newegg, I can just pick up the drive, a new icy dock tray for 15 bucks and use the external casing for both drives and swap out when needed. Glad to be on the forums finally, and thanks to the poster that led me to the WD 750gb Caviar. It's fantastic.
