Firewire externals for long tracking periods...

Alright, I have a 100gig 7200rpm but I don't think it's cutting the mustard in the multitracking speed dept.

According to MOTU tech support (whom I barley trust) it would seem to be the reason I start getting sluggish when tracking 16 tracks at 48k 24bit for long periods of time. I need suggestions of some screaming external firewire drives for this purpose. Close to the $200 is comfortable. Close to 100 gigs is wanted. I plan to use this current one for storage only now.

Whats are you folks using? Anyone track 16 tracks for 2 hours plus? I need dependable, fast and affordable.

Whatcha got?

Whats the "oxford 911 chip" deal? It's good I take it?
