External Hard Drive Advice-Which one to buy???

Ok so I need a 2TB External for storing and playing avi files from using various devices.

This needs to last for at least a year or to and will get a decent amount of use

This seems to be a top of the range one obviously has firewire etc with a 3 year Warranty

This one is a more standard one USB only

Is it worth it for the extra?

Any other options?

Rep for advice

If you NEED a 2TB hard drive I would say the western digital is good (I have had 4 and all were perfect)

I have several WD Portable Externals which have never let me down...just wondering if the extra price is worth it?

It has to be a 2TB

I don't think so. these hard drives have a good record (although vital items should always have backups)

Pay Extra - Buy a 2TB WD HD

That WD is so expensive because it's for Macs, it'll work with PCs but if they say it's for Macs they charge more.

What about these:

Cheers,but only really want WD or a better brand....price not the real issue looking for reliability,quietness etc
