Recommendation for a Firewire External Hard Drive?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

I just got a new Macbook Pro with a SSD that does not have a big capacity. I was wondering if anyone could recommend me a Firewire External hard drive. Looking for roughly minimum of 1 TB. Thanks!

What about this guy? Firewire 800, USB if you need it, expandable up to about 5.5GB with 4 2TB drives, RAID. I have one I got used and it's nice.
