I'm wanting to get an external HDD and I would like one that would actually work easily switching between a mac and a pc. So, simultaneous cross platform compatibility.
I'm torn between these two. They're price comparably. The Maxtor has better specifications, but the Lacie has firewire 800. But I have no idea how they preform in real world situations switching back and forth.
Maxtor One Touch II
Lacie D2 Extreme with Triple Interface
These are new technologies for me, so any help would be appreciated. But PC compatibility comes first. Blame my PC unfriendly school.
