Portable USB/Firewire Drive Recommendation?


Distinguished Member
When I woke up this morning I had no intention on buying a MacBookPro - but having missed-out on buying a refurb i7 13" by seconds this afternoon, the nice man on the end of the phone at Apple made me an offer I couldn't refuse.

It's for my daughter when she goes to university after the summer (publishing), so I want to get a decent portable drive for backup and data security. She will be using CS5 Design Premium, so good/fast transfer speeds would be good (which is why I'm looking at FW800).

(Before you say it, even though I wanted her to have a 15" model, she insisted on the 13").

Even so, the point is, what are others' experience of having actually bought such drives - in terms of recommendations for specific manufacturers, and for ones to avoid like the plague?
