Which external HDD?
Jan 8, 2013, 12:19 PM
I'am going to buy a 3tb external HDD. But I dont know which one to choose. So far i've got it down to 2:
• WDBAAU0030HBK-EESN Western Digital 3TB Elements 3.5" External Desktop Hard Drive
• STBV3000200 Seagate Expansion 3TB External Desktop Hard Drive
The HDD is going to be used for 2 tasks, backing my data & storing my multimedia collection. It's also going to be connected to my "Server" so its always on.
Which one should I buy?
As i don't know which on, I'll let the forum decide...
