Hi, I am looking for a couple of 500GB external USB drives to use as backup storage to be alternated and taken offsite. There are myriad choices of external drives, though 500GB does limit the search somewhat. The manufacturers are not the same as those of internal drives that I am familiar with. What I need is some opinions on quality brands and what specs, besides throughput and buffer size, I might consider when comparing drives.
