    Unless you need the E-SATA Port... the Acrylic one is what I would go with. It's cheaper in price and just seem less clunky looking.. "smaller".

    Thanks for the reply. I will be using FW 800. Is it worth getting 7200 RPM over the 5400?

    The speed is faster but for an external storage device.... I just don't think it makes a difference. It's not like you will be booting programs from the drive so 5400 should suffice.
