Don't count on them for "storage." All are being reported as occasionally losing content. Be sure to keep what you can't lose on your backup (just like you do now.)
I've had all the names around the office plus the ones you put a drive into some case. All seem fine at the office.
I want to buy an external hard drive and I've been looking around but, I don't really know what brands are good. So far Im looking at Seagate - FreeAgent Desk and Western Digital - My Book Essential. Ive heard that seagate has some problems and i read some reviews that Western digital has virtual software on it that install when you plug it in. I really dont know what to get. I just want it to click and drag external hard drive.. something simple.. for around 80-100$.
