I am thinking of adding another large hard drive to my system. I came across the Pyro 1394 drive kit (it is basically a external casing for IDE devices via your firewire card).

This seems a simpler solution than dismantling my computer and I think I will be running out of space, anyway.

Has anyone used the Pyro 1394 Drive Kit?
Is it any good.

although i have not used one, there are plenty of articles showing how difficult it can be to get these to work.

for the expense, is it really not worth removing the cover of your pc? it will only take 15 minutes to install an internal disk and save you a lot of money.

The reason for the external was the lack of space in the machine casing and available ide channels. One has an IDE Ultra DMA/33 hard drive and CD rom, the other IDE Ultra DMA/66 hard drive. I'll take my lid of and see if I can get another hard drive in there.

I was just curious about the Pyro drive kit, can you direct me towards any articles.
