I'm not an expert with knowing what I should look for. I'm not looking for massive space for memory like 1.5 TB I'm looking for around 500gb, but if the price is right and the product is considered good then I'll reconsider. but does anybody have or know of a reputable external hard drive? we (as in my family) has a 200gb Seagate, and it hasn't failed once so I'm probably leaning towards that company as of now. any suggestions of advice would be appreciated!
