Which hard drive?


Hi all.

I have tried for weeks not to bother you about this one but it looks like I'm going to have to! ::angel::

OK, my Lacie external drive died on me recently following a good knocking it got during my recent move to a new place. So, I'm looking for a replacement. I have looked at many hard drives out there but I'm none the wiser. I'm looking for a 500GB firewire drive or perhaps slightly smaller. The main 2 candidates initially appeared to be Formac XTR and Lacie Big Disk but reading the reviews, there are known issues of overheating and noise about them.

Would you be so kind to make some recommendations for me?

Thanks a lot :)
