Which external drive (500 GB) to buy?

Hi everyone,

I am planning to buy a 500 GB 2.5" Portable.

I have narrowed down my options to

1. Western Digital Elements 500 GB

2. Verbatim 500 GB

3. Transcend StoreJet 25D2 500 GB

4. 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
