EZQuest began shipping its new 45GB and 60GB FireWire hard drives today. The drives are rated at 7200 RPM. According to EZQuest:

The Boa 45GB and 60GB FireWire hard drives are shipping to Apple dealers worldwide.

The Cobra 45GB and 60GB drives tout transfer rates of 12/13MB/sec*, dual 6pin FireWire ports, internal power supply, hot plug ease of use and 3 year warranties. The Cobra series hard drives are compatible with the iMac DV line, blue and white G3s as well as G4 Macintosh computers.

* on tests with a G4 400MHZ with Mac Bench 5.0

All drives are shipping with an "ice" flavored exterior, internal auto switching power supply, Firewire cable and EZQuest's Disk Controller software.
