I recently had the chance to test one of the new external 300GB Hard
drives. It worked out of the box on my PB G4 12" and a colleagues' 17"
using firewire and usb. The only concern I'd have with that drive comes
from the bad experiences in reliability I have with internal maxtor
disks at work.  Some months year ago I plugged in a firewire drive -
don't know the model, probably noname - and ist also worked flawlessly.
