I have a Lacie and it works like a charm but I was thinking about picking up a Seagate Freeagent Pro. I comes with a switchable module so you can run two firewire ports with it, plenty of room, 7200 rpm. All the specs check out to make it a winner except the Oxford chipset. Im not too sure what it uses but its not the Oxford. I know Digidesign has "approved" the Oxford chipset and nothing else but Im wondering how vital it is. By the way the Seagate is a 320gb USB 2.0/Firewire 400/eSATA drive for 110$. Wow!!!!
