    It is slightly religion and opinion but I tend to use Seagate drives as they have been reliable for me. I used to use Western Digital but I had a bunch of failures earlier on so I stopped. I have bought new Western Digital external drives and those have been pretty solid.

    I bought a 500GB 7200 rpm Seagate from Amazon where I ordered my MBP.
