More about seagate 500gb external
  1. I'd say it makes little difference. As long as they both are single-platter 500GB disks.
  2. they both are good, i suggest anythng which is external powered and not usb powered for maximum performance.

    i have had usb powered seagate to stop responding and loss of files through transfers in case of laptops. high volume such as 500GB, i wont have it usb powered.
  3. 3.5" disks can't be USB powered. USB delivers 5W while 3.5" disks need 30W to spinup. Only 2.5" external disks can be USB powered.
