    I haven't used the QPS (Que) hard drives, but I have used their external FireWire burners and I can tell you the quality is outstanding. That said, you could probably save a few bucks by buying an IDE hard drive and a FireWire enclosure for it. But if you aren't so inclined then the self-contained units work just as well.
    Other than the installation of a possible software driver, the drives are truly plug and play. You just plug it into the FireWire port and it appears on you Desktop as a separate volume. Just make sure when you're done that you "eject" the volume by dragging it to the Trash. Then you can unplug the drive and be on your merry way.
