Thread: Recommended external hard drive

What external hard drive would you recommend? I need it to be cheap, to store and backup about 250 Gb of data or less, and to be compatible with time machine. Doesn't have to wireless and pretty looking, all I could find was some expensive time capsules etc.

I will just put in what I had good luck with and probably what everyone else will do they
all fail at some point just the nature of the beast but both home and work we have been
very lucky with Western Digital and Lacie d2's.

I have two WD MyBook Essential 1TB drives. I had one fail a month after I got it, and it was replaced by the store I got it from. I have been using them both since March and have had no more problems with them. They do work with Time Machine when formatted correctly. They are fairy inexpensive. I paid $99 each for them.
