I got myself the 320 GB version last week. I already had two Toshiba external drives that are better, but I couldn't find them anywhere. The Toshibas spin down after they've not been used for a while, AND they have a decent on/off switch. I now have the LaCie, that contains all my data, connected to a slug, and the Toshibas as backup drives. The slug acts as a data server on my home network. It can automagically copy the contents of one drive to the other at a specified time every so many days. Every now and then I take one data drive to work, and put the other data drive on the slug. In this way I keep most of my precious data when my house burns down or is visited by burglars.
