For speed, always look for a FireWire drive with the technology "Oxford 911
". it is the name of the bridge between the IDE input and the FireWire output (there is no yet any "native" FireWire drive on the market). Others bridges suck.
IMHO the best FW desktop HD would be the ICE FireWire enclosure
with the Western Digital 80 GB IDE 7200 rpm in it. (< $320)
The EZquest Cobra+
80 GB 7200rpm is fast and cool, a little more expensive though (
Don't buy the Maxtor's FireWire HD because they are only 5400 rpm.
You can foun the ICE and the Cobra+ there :
