      I find the best thing to do is buy an enterprise class drive. These usually come with a 5 year warranty. These drives cost a little more but the components passed higher level tests then the drive lacie will sell you.

      As Matt mentioned I buy my drives at other world computing  they have build your own kits to choose the interfaces firewire/usb and choose enterprise class drives.

      This isn't as big a deal as many people make it out to be. Anything
      that implements the standard USB mass storage profile will work; the
      protocols have been fully standardized for many years now. Even more
      relevant is the fact that there are only three or four different USB
      device-end chipsets used in mass storage devices nowadays, and they all
      work on pretty much anything.
