Best external hard drive? Tags: External Hard Drive Storage Last response: October 31, 2009 11:43 PM in Storage Share Just a nickname October 16, 2009 5:30:32 PM Hi, I'm upgrading my 2 years old computer and I need to do a backup to reinstal everything on it. I was wondering what is the best external HD price/performance cheaper as possible. I rapidly checked the rebates: Western Digital MyBook Essential 500GB 3.5” External Hard Drive - Black retail: 70CA$ (saving 90$) I want to buy at futureshop.ca for the simple reason that it's really close. If you have any deal at NCIX.com, post it, they have an awesome shipping service. I want to have it the sooner possible because I received all my upgrade parts. Thank for reading.
