You'll be fine with that setup; Firmtek is one of the very few eSATA enclosure manufacturers that actually do it right.

Awsome Robert! Thanks.

I sure hope so cause I'm going to be living and working in multiple countries over the next few years and I need rock solid dependibility.

I aganized a little over going with the Hitachi Ultrastar but the dealer felt it just was not worth the extra coin as I would not be leaving them run 24/7.

He also said the the Seagates did push faster transfers although they kind of went up and down like a heartbeat whereas the Hitachi were constant.

I'll be using the Mackbook Pro and so I'll be limited by its bus speed. I don't plan on using more that 2-3 video tracks so I heard that there won't be dropped frames.

Any thoughts on anything else I might need to be aware of?
