Firewire HD or IDE HD in firewire enclosure.
I want to buy a semi portable 30-60GB HD. I want the speed of firewire so USB is out. I can buy a firewire enclosure for about 90 bucks, stick a 60GB IBM 60GXP HD in there for about 150 and have a firewire HD for 240. Or I can buy a slower 5400 rpm (as opposed to the 7200 rpm of the IBM) 60GB firewire HD for 350. Is there something I am not seeing? Size of the drive does not matter to me. Are there any advantages to the firewire HD, or should I just buy the enclosure and IBM?
If this drive is like others, (ie USB or SCSI) then it is just a regular old drive in a firewire box. I would go for the enclosure and the drive! Get someone that has actually had one of these in their hands though to confirm it. Mine is only speculation.
Hey shnikey! Go to Firewire Direct and look at the Hard Drive solutions. The 60 gig with cables costs $300. I have one and it's great.
How's school going? Mine is going good.
