Thanks Milen, I will go for Maxtor Maxtor OneTouch - 300 GB -MFG#: E01G300 ( first choice in the latest Hunter's article ). I don't want to experiment too much, time is not expandable; I already have Western Digital external disk that didn't work ( I considered LaCie 2 years ago, but of course went with the wrong choice). Much appreciated Milen.
Hi Ranko, I am using Maxtor One Touch, 250 GB enclosure. It is not the best price you can get from an external 250 GB HDD, but I have bought exactly this model only to test RAC. So far I am pretty content with it. As far as I know LaCie is offering external HDD enclosures with Oxford911 chipset, so you have a choice ;)

I'll probably try Firewire again. I have Western Digital disk, maybe that's the problem. What is exactly disk model you used Milen ?
