Well, today, I went to Best Buy and got myself a FireWire 250 GB Verbatim HD to back up my files with. It was pretty simple, all I had to do was plug it in and accept that I wanted to use it with Time Machine. So far, I haven't had any problems with it, so I'm guessing it will do good.

Yea,
You have to catch BB when they're having a sale... otherwise they're pretty overpriced..

FRY'S is where all the deals are!

Well, they had some for sale, but they were all 160GB USB. I wanted a FireWire 250GB. And the Virbatim was the only 250GB they had on the shelves that was at that price. I really wanted a WD, but I've heard some people tell me they don't last long.
