In searching out an EHD recommendation for a friend in the UK recently, I read some (seriously) negative reviews of the Iomega, with one writer raging 'ANYthing but Iomega'. Make of that what you will, but read reviews extensively before making a decision. I suggest you stick with the better-known brands like Hitachi, Seagate or Western Digital.

The FW800 factor will come from the enclosure, and, if you're in the market for a new one, I recommend buying from OWC, even with the added cost of importing. The Oxford chipset is highly recommended.
