    Tell me, I'm going to order this week, the new SR MB + extra's that I need for my Logic needs.

    I can't find one that I truly like, nor any that are portable, so your suggestions are highly appreciated and needed!

    Thanks!

    Didn't come with the paperclip though... would have been useful. Could have taken out the AT&T SIM from my iPhone a little bit quicker. :)

    it's not 7200RPM, not a problem for Logic?

    I use the LaCie 320 and 500 triple interface drives, mainly with the FW800 interface.

    Done several projects with the ones I have and never had a problem, even when we lost the power mid way through a mix playback...!

    Glyph! Period. :)

    EDIT: Sorry, not so portable, if you mean bus powered.

    Might wanna check out the portable drives from G-Technology (Not to be confused with Glyph). Bus powered, FW800, 7K200 drive and no fan; on paper they look great for audio work. I would get one if I didn't already have a Glyph 050Q for recording.

    I'd love to get a glyph, even if they are beasts to carry, but they're super expensive here (Belgium) and very hard to get a hold of...
    The G-tech drives I understood are just fancy lacie drives?

    Using Lacie 40Gb Firewire HD portable, bus powered firewire 400 design from porsche.

    I plan to get a 250gb Lacie firewire 400 design from porsche hard drive or a lacie 250Gb rugged HD that has firewire 800. I love the speed I get from firewire 800 but its over kill for my Traktor Scratch/iTunes backups.
