View Full Version : Good external hard drive brand

13-05-2010, 12:09 AM
Hey my mate is going over to the US soon and is thinking about buying an external hard drive while over there and asked me what would be a good brand to get, so I told her Maxtor or Seagate. Was I wrong?

Western Digital would be my first choice then Seagate.

+1 for WD and Seagate
I buy "raw" drives (no enclosures) and just drop them into my docking station.

I wouldn't buy any external drive prebuilt, I'd make my own custom one...

yeah but she is not a tech person

Why not just buy one here? I doubt it will be much cheaper over there and if you run into problems a warranty in NZ will be better
