Default 750 GB External Hard Drive

Just got a WD "My Book" 750GB external hard drive for backup and video storage...........sweet unit!
Would of went with the 1 TB but figured that was getting ridiculious.

Holy crap, I need THAT!!!! I have the WD 250GB MyBook version. It's nearing capactiy already. When you have movie collections and such on there, 1TB is a must have. The unit is small, but heavy suprisingly.

Hmm i dont have one right now , i did have a 40g one a while back and it failed on me but it was old tbh

I am looking at gettnig something around the 320gb to 500g limit , prolly the smaller one cos i dont realy like large drives myself
Prices have come down a lot as well i have noticed , now you can get 500g for about £70

Muz, have you got an ALDIs near you, as they keep getting a 500G one in from time to time for abut the same price, I have an old thread on it somewhere.

I'm replacing an 80GB, 160GB, and a 320GB external drives.
Nice to have one large unit but I will probably still keep the 320GB unit and use it for just backup purposes.

WD sure makes some nice drives at a pretty reasonable price.
