Hello,

Does anyone know what's the difference between "Fantom GF3BM500U Gforce3 Mini USB 3.0 Portable 2.5" Hard Drive - 500GB" (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1084072&CatId=4226) and Fantom MTT500 Titanium Mini External Hard Drive - 500GB, USB 2.0 (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6052639&pagenumber=4&RSort=1&csid=ITD&recordsPerPage=5&body=#ReviewStart) other than the fact that one has USB 3 / 2 and one has USB 2. Is one more reliable than the other or vise versa?

Also, does anyone have any reviews on either one please? That would be really helpful! :) 

In addition, if you had the choice to pick between 1 of those two, and Seagate's FreeAgent GoFlex (500gb) (http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/product/seagate-seagate-goflex-3-0-500gb-external-portable-hard-drive-staa500608-staa500608/10171989.aspx?path=59f7f4066d47ea2fb5d573209d9b991cen02), and WD My Passport Essential SE (http://www.amazon.com/Western-Digital-Passport-Essential-Portable/dp/B0041OSQ9S/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1315671013&sr=1-1)... which one would you pick?

Thanks :D
