Need a reliable external hard drive for Mac

Hi, I need a reliable external hard drive for my Mac Powerbook. What is up with every commercial external hard drive being unreliable, slow, unrecognizable to computers, crashing after a year? That's all I've seen on reviews about Iomga to Maxtor to others. Does anyone have a solid recommendation based on personal usage? This is primarily for firewire-routed MiniDV footage that needs to be digitized and stored. Thanks!

I'd recommend the D2 line of Lacie external's. Perfect for your needs.
