Randy,

I'd suggest building your own. I've seen some good deals on IBM 120 Gig hard drives (around $110). You can pick up Firewire enclosures for about $48 from www.computergeeks.com.

If you don't want to build your own, OWC and LaCie (though they seem to be expensive) have good reputations.

Randy,

I've found that everyone has opinions on hard drives. I haven't had problems with WD drives in the past. My recent drives have been Maxtor since I was able to find the best deal on them at the time.

Randy,

I've owned a few WD drives over the years and never a prob with any of them. I bought a WG 60 gig 7,200 rpm drive a few months ago (about $59 after rebate) for my main Mac and it works great!
