IOMEGA VS MAXTOR

I want to buy an external hard drive for backup purposes.  Both are 120gig.  The two choices are  Maxtor OneTouch Personal Storage - 120GB and Iomega HDD 120GB USB 2.0/Firewire Hard Drive.  The Maxtor is about $30 more.  Which one would you buy?  The Iomega has Firewire and USB.  The Maxtor has USB only, but has 2 meg cache.  The Iomega has 1 year warranty.  The Maxtor has 2 years warranty.  I am looking for reliable storage.  Any thoughts?

To me warranty says a lot when considering reliability. Personally I would spend the $30 more for the Maxtor. IOmega has made a name for themselves when it comes to floptical storage but Maxtor has been around for a while. I would go with a proven comapany that has been an industry leader for some time now. A company that backs their product for 2 years.

Maxtor.

As far as speed is concerned Firewire and USB 2.0 are very similar especially for HDD's
