Which external drive (500 GB) to buy?
Nov 19, 2010, 1:03 PM
I am planning to buy a 500 GB 2.5" Portable.
I have narrowed down my options to
Western Digital Elements 500 GB
Verbatim 500 GB
Transcend StoreJet 25D2 500 GB
Seagate Expansion 500 GB
This will be my first external hard disk. I have never used one before.
I will be using it to mainly backup my files.
I would like it to
last long and perform well
Please suggest one for me

I own 3 WD external drives: a 750 GB, a 1.5 TB, and a 2 TB. No problems with any of them. Gives my home network of three desktops, a 15.6" laptop, and a netbook a total of 11.5 TB of storage, all WD.
