I have the iOmega drive you linked, and I LOVE it. Had an Seagate... crapped out on me. Have a buddy who had the same Seagate... crapped out on him. The iOmega is really nice looking, built/designed very well and is FAST as lightening ! As far as power goes, I think that Firewire supplies power more efficiently than USB, so it shouldn't be an issue.

I would not hesitate to get another one, and I might do just that, instead of having these huge WD externals laying around. If I had to say anything negative about it, it would be that the activity light is incredibly, ridiculously BRIGHT ! Nothing a tiny piece of electrical tape of marker can't handle though.
