    Question Which External HD Enclosure
    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. http://www.mwave.com/mwave/viewspec....0&RSKU=AA26430

    I was wondering if anybody had advice an external enclosure or external hard drive. My requirements would be:
    1. QUIET
    2. Firewire is a must, USB optional
    3. 500 gb capacity (if it comes with drive)
    OR
    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:

    - http://fwdepot.com/thestore/product_...roducts_id/714

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

    its very quiet, and sits under mini. plus you get 2 extra firewire and 3 extra usb2 with built in hub. you can get it up to 750GB.
