If anyone can help me so I could stop going crazy, I'd appreciate it. I need to replace my son's hard drive and there are so many with so many different reviews, I've been researching for hours. I'd like to get a 1TB to 2TB, with a 3.0/2.0 USB, that's tough and reliable and isn't a ridiculous price. If anyone has any suggestions, especially first hand experience, it would be great. I had a Maxtor, it broke after a year, my son lost everything that was on it, and returned it and got another one. Now, after less than a year, it is working when it feels like it. I am afraid it will go before he has a chance to back it up, and he will lose everything again. After the first incident, we realized we needed a backup for the backup, which we did for the most part. But he's away at school and he doesn't have access to the one I have at home, and his school work, movies and games are on there. He didn't have a chance to back everything up before he left. If it goes before we back it up, he will lose everything again. It's costing me more money to back up the computer than the computer costs. I'd like to keep the cost about $100.00 or just little more. Thanks for any help.
