Choosing the right external Hard Disk

It’s that time again in everyone’s lives when we run out of space for our data.

Having 2 external hard disks at home, a 250GB (Seagate FreeAgent Go) and 120GB (Samsung), I always thought I will have enough space for the next five years!

But my projection was wrong by half!

Now, I am presently checking the market for an external hard disk with at least 1.5TB of space.

With my horror stories on using a Maxtor and Western Digital 5 years ago, I have always been a Seagate fanboy.

My brother’s 486DX66 PC at home uses a 400(++)MB Seagate hard disk and it still works! It has been around since 1994.

However, as we all know that Maxtor is now operated by Seagate, Western Digital seems to have made a big leap when it comes to quality.

I am presently stuck with the biggest dilemma on which brand of external hard disk to use.

To help me decide, I’ve started a thread in Clubsnap and Philmug to see which brand is more popular.

Seems like Western Digital has won the hearts of Filipino Mac users and Photographers in Singapore

Due to the large disparity in price, I find Seagate’s Expansion to be very appealing.

As of now, my decision is still not final but once I finally make a purchase it will be posted here!
