Solved Choosing between 2 Hard drives Tags: Hard Drives Backup Enclosure Storage Product Last response: March 22, 2011 5:45 PM in Storage Share widgetguy_th March 14, 2011 7:54:38 PM I was going to get an external enclosure and put a 2TB hard drive into it for backup. There are 2 drives that I'm looking at and I wanted to see if anyone has any input about which one is better. Seagate LP 2 TB ST32000542AS-Bare Drive Hitachi Deskstar 2 TB 0F12117 The enclosure I was looking at is VANTEC NST-300SU-BK The two hard drives have the same capacity and both have positive reviews and are currently priced the same at 69.99. Can anyone tell me which would be the best fit for backup storage? I'm just gonna keep it in a drawer and back up my files every week or so.
