Firewire HDD chipset question for PT7


i have been trying to find a new firewire drive for my new WindowsXP laptop w/PT7. i know the HDD has to have the oxford 911 chipset for PT but the drives i looked at on-line at places like and such do not list the chipset. i even e-mailed a couple of places selling drives and the one didn't know(!) and the other one never got back to me.

so, i need to know if there are some inexpensive drives (like under $150) that you folks out in gearslutz-land know for sure are using the oxford 911 chipset.

sales people are never going to know that kind of stuff, look up the manufactures web page.
Lacie and Maxtor use oxford chipsets

This is what I'm using now:

It has the 911 chipset, plus it's a firewire and USB hub and can be set to automatically start and shut down with your computer. You can buy them with a hard drive preinstalled, or you can just buy the enclosure for $80 and supply your own hard drive.
