What portable external drive do you currently recommend?
Posted on 2011-02-22
We are looking to replace some of our current external hard drives we use for backups. They get taken in and out of the office on a regular basis. Seagate currently has their GoFlex 500 GB hard drives on sale for $ 60 each which seems like a good deal. However, with the addition of the new interchangeable interface the warranty seems to have dropped from 5 years to 3 years.
Does anyone else recommend a different drive or is the GoFlex a good way to go? We had Seagate Freeagent Go's and WD Elements in the past, but the Freeagent Go's seem to be hard to find anymore (even though a few still sell them). They may be getting disocintuned.
