I thinking of buying one of the three hard drives above. I would just like your opinions on what one is the most reliable. I only have a 30gb harddrive on my computer thats always full. I want to store all my music and movies onto it and maybe also editing some of the videos i store onto it, also i will d/l files from the internet straight onto it. I dont plan to use the backup software, I just want safe storage. I had a 250 gb maxtor drive which is on the verge off not working anymore, e.g strange noises & files not playing from it, so i need to try and transfer everything from it onto this new drive.
Also I only have usb1 slots on my computer, I also have 3 firewire ports available and 1 free pci card slot, which I could use for an esata card if I get an esata external drive. oh..how much are esata cards?
or If anybody has any other recommations on any other drives at the same size and simular price, let me know.
