Western Digital is coming to market with a 120GB external Firewire hard drive (HDD) for PC and Mac.

The beast incorporates a 7,200RPM platter-spinning Caviar HDD and carries a list price of $349. If you want to go large, you can stack systems together in a daisy chain.

There's also PCI adaptor option for desktops and and a PC card connector for notebooks. These supply the Firewire option for legacy systems, WD says.

The new external hard drive goes on sale this month through the usual channels, including WD's very own online store. Earlier this month, Maxtor went large with its own 120GB external hard drive, supplied with USB 2.0, a fast connectivity standard which competes with FireWire. ®
