Best brand of external hd and how to tell which chipset an hd has.

I need to get an external hd, but I am not sure about which is of the highest quality for a mac. I am looking at something like this:
I want it to have two drives in the enclosure so that it can mirror itself in the event of one of them kicking it in. It also needs to be firewire 800 compatible. 1 tb or more is prefferable too.
Another thing adding to my uncertainty of which drive to buy is that I was told by the guy at the mac place I got my system from that I should get an external drive with an oxford chipset. Does anyone know how to find out which chipset an hd has?
Sorry if that is a lot of questions/criteria. Lol. Any help would be very much appreciated.
