Default A newbie who has a question!

Hey guys I hope you can help me. I am looking for a portable hard drive and I am deciding between Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 1 TB, and the Western Digital My Passport Essential SE 1 TB. I was just wondering which one would be better? They're both in my price range and any information anyone can provide on which one is better would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks again!

They're mostly parity. That is, even. Just pick one and go. An external hard drive is only really differentiated by the software or features it comes with. Looking at those, it's kind of a draw, just pick one and go.

I have been continually impressed by seagate products. But whichever you choose make sure you get a 1 year warranty or more just to be on the safe side.
