External portable hard drive, on Amazon this costs £120 and I can't find it near this price anywhere else, model with Firewire 800 which usually costs a load more over the USB model

    Any reason you'd choose this over the 1tb portable USB 3 hitachi Touro ?

    I don't know anyone who still uses firewire, bar a few old video cameras.

    G Technology are an Hitachi brand, they make a lot of "professional" RAID drives etc

    I'm personally a Mac user, so limited to USB2/Firewire/Thunderbolt. USB 2 is pretty slow in comparison to FW800 (and Thunderbolt drives are ridiculously expensive), so they are still quite popular, but usually a premium above USB drives. For users who have USB 3 compatible products then the drive on eBuyer is a bargain, but for anyone who needs (specifically) a drive with Firewire then as far as I know this is about as cheap as it gets.

    Agreed... a good (bridging) hard drive for Mac users while we wait for the Thundebolt drives to become mainstream/affordable
