I've had my Mac MINI for 1 month now and am very glad I switched from my WinDoze pc. Running on a BSD machine takes me back to my college days on Apollo Domain OS ... ANYWAY ...

Only thing it lacks is drive space ... I have several large drives in enclosures that were fine for my PC ... but they sound like a jet engine next to the MINI.

I was wondering if anybody had advice an external enclosure or external hard drive. My requirements would be:
2. Firewire is a must, USB optional
3. 500 gb capacity (if it comes with drive)
4. Dual or Quad bays with RAID (if it come without drives)

I've seen a few that look promising, but I just don't know:

If you have had a good experience, or a poor experience with a particular drive or enclosure, please let me know.
