I'm trying to find a good FW400 drive or drive enclosure that is\nreliable and fast and works well with OSX 10.4.5. I have never\npurchased an external drive before so I'm a bit ignorant of some of the\ncriteria.\n\nIn doing my research I found some references to a chipset called\n"Oxford 911" which appears to be the bridge between the FW and IDE\ninterfaces. Its performance (in 2001, when most reviews of external\ndrives seem to have last ben made) was supposed to be fantastic and was\nhighly recommended.\n\nIn 2006 does the Oxford911 chipset really matter anymore? Is there any\nreal discernable differences between drives/enclosures and if so what\nshould I be looking for?\n\n(PS. I figure that I could use extra drive speed because I'll be doing\na bunch of audio recording and manipulation)\n\nThanks in advance for your responses.
