I have seen several product listings for 911 based enclosures that claimed > 128GB support, check out the link I supplied above for one example. My hard drives are 120GB (Seagate Barracuda V) so, I have no first hand experience.
Also, the ME-320 5.25" enclosure has a VERY loud fan. I disconnected the cable to the fan, with no adverse effects (yet).
The ME-370, 3.5" enclosure has a smaller/quieter fan. I left that one running, since the Barracudas run pretty hot, and the enclosure is small.
I was also looking for dual USB and 1394 enclosures. I wanted them small to transport the hard drive easily (record on one PC and take elsewhere to watch or for backups). In my experience, 1394 places less load on the receiving system's processor. Having both USB2 and 1394 is ideal.
I eventually bought this small Coolmax aluminium case, and so far it's worked fine and is very convenient.
Regarding >128GB support the easiest way to know for sure is contacting the reseller or manufacturer.
Are you using the enclosure your referenced with Mac or WinXP?
With both; transparently.
I haven't sort this out yet but cheaper Oxford911 enclosures will give me stutters in DVD and HD playback while more expensive ones give me no trouble. Like I said, I have not been able to pinpoint what the difference is.
