Which network/back-up external hard drive? Tags: Hard Drives Western Digital External Hard Drive Storage Last response: July 1, 2010 4:36 AM in Storage Share the_dialogue June 30, 2010 12:12:02 AM So I plan to hook up my WIFI router to a network hard drive via USB. I also want to use this external hard drive for back-up. My 1st choice at the moment is the LaCie 1TB d2 Quadra Hard Disk http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=1... However it seems quite pricey ($190CDN). If I look at the same website I find several other hard drives, sometimes with more capacity and for much cheaper! For example Western Digital My Book Elite 1TB ($120) http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=1... ... or the 1.5 TB for $140 Seagate FreeAgent Desk 2TB ($170) http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=1... AcomData (PDHD1000UFSE-72) PureDrive 1TB ($110) http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=1... AcomData (PDHD2000UFSE) PureDrive 2TB ($175) http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=1... HP SimpleSave 2TB ($180) http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=1... ... or the 1.5TB for $140 HELP! I need something dependable, and I'm willing to pay a premium for known dependability. NOTE: I just realized that there are "network" external hard drives that accept an ethernet connection. I think that's best, no? e.g. Western Digital's World Edition http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=1...
