For my PowerPC G4. What's the best of the two? And what's a good brand?
i really like liteon. i've never had trouble with mine, but its on a windows machine and it's internal. benq isn't bad. my brother has an hp external and no complaints, also on a windows machine.
the only bad thing i can see about an external is that it takes up a little more space, less clean looking for a mac, and also, the transfer rate will only be 400 mbps for usb 2 or 800 mbps for the firewire 800. i have a feeling that an internal would be faster. it's nice to have something quick for copying movies, i mean test copying movies, hehe
I have a lacie firelite that works great
The D/L that comes in the new PowerMacs is a Pioneer if that helps.
Yeah get a Pioneer internal drive. No reason to waste space and resources with an external one. Internal is cheaper and faster.
