Default External Hard Drive

Please recommend an external hard drive for around $80. I would like at least 500GB and would go as high as $90. I was told that a few years ago, western digitalís hard drives werenít very good, maybe they have changed. In your opinion, what company makes a good external hard drive?


Thanks for your replies!

I've always had good experiences with Western Digital drives. Its Seagates and Maxtors that always gave me problems.

Not sure who in their right mind would say WD's aren't very good, I personally go with WD whenever possible and have never had an issue. Here's a 1TB WD for 79.99. Or if you do want to steer clear of WD, my second choice would be this Seagate. Although Seagate could be debatable on quality.
