I hope someone can assist as my brain is starting to ache deciding what to do and I need more memory quickly now as there's only 5Gb left on my interal drive.
I'm looking for a small usb powered external hard drive with 320Gb - 500Gb.
My prioirities are speed and reliability.
I've looked at the following:
Seagate Free Agent Go
Western Digital My Passport Essential and Elite
Fujitsu Handidrive 320Gb
Buffalo Ministation Turbo 500Gb
LaCie Little Disk 500 Gb
Various Freecom mobiledrives and toughdrives
or alternatively I would consider buying a Samsung 2.5" drive and separate enclosure.
I keep reading that Samsung are the best drives - do any of the above use them?
Do any such drives you know of have eSATA connection as an option? I thinkk the DIY option allows me to achieve this though I would need to also buy an express card/eSATA adapter for my Dell Inspiron 9400 and don't know if it's worth the bother.
Any help/pointers appreciated and I guess hopfeully useful to others on here.
