Got a 320 gig from a company named Acom Data. Ya, ya, I know, never buy cheap hard drives, but eh, most of my stuff is on DVD's as well.

I'd use Windows... but I like the Mac OS more.

If you are looking for a good backup solution, then you may like this. It is a 200GB external firewire/usb harddrive from Seagate. Right now outpost.com has it for $169.99 - $40 rebate = $129.99.

Seagate is my favorite hdd manufacturer, and outpost.com has been a reliable store for me.
