    good 500GB external hard drives anyone?
    hey... im looking at getting a 500GB external hard drive that is compatible with USB and Firewire 400 for my soon to be macbook. can anyone suggest a good solid hard drive that has a good reputation for quality and doesnt cost more than $300? the closer to $200 the better but i can go higher if it means better quality. thank you everyone!

    I've always used LaCie drives and been very happy with them.
    Here is a 1TB drive for $264. This isn't what I have, but it's similar. I run backups to them daily, all day long, via Time Machine. They have never failed on me.

    This has nothing to do with your thread, but your title reminded me to order that 500GB external as I am desperately running out of space on my HTPC (I think I'm down to about 8GB free ). This should put me up to about 2.5TB

    2.5Tb? Armature. ( ) I have 2 Tb internal and another 1.8 external. I'm hoping to upgrade all 4 internals to 1Tb shortly. I laugh at you2 puny 2.5Tb...... ha ha ha ha ha !

    Hey now, I'm working on it slowly. Plus, my totals across the house are much larger, somewhere in the 5TB range. That 2.5TB is only a single machine
