For a while, although it hasn't been at the top of my list, I have been looking to get a large internal or external HDD. Both of my computers are hand-me-downs, although they don't play the latest games, they are great for my needs/wants. My computers are approximately this:
1.6gHz Intel Pentium 4
Geforce4 with 64mb video ram
80GB internal HDD
30GB internal HDD
1.4 or 1.6gHz Intel Pentium 4
Some ATI video card with 16mb video ram I think
30 GB internal HDD
Anyways, my problem is that I use my desktop because of the HDD's for my iTunes library, and recently it has been growing fairly large because I have been ripping a bunch of DVDs which average a little over a gigabyte in size since I encode them to be able to be viewed on a TV. I was thinking of getting either an internal or external HDD, but after researching, today, I saw this add:
My friend has one of those, I even used it on my laptop once to play Warcraft III off of it for a LAN game with him and another friend. Even though my laptop uses USB 1.1, it was able to load the game and play it at an extremely reasonable speed.
Additionally, I would probably use this HDD to keep backups of my files, and have it store my main copy of my iTunes library on it (it's consolidated to one iTunes folder).
Would this be a good HDD for me? I might bring it to a friend's place every now and then, so I would have to carry the power adapter, but it seems like a reasonable drive.
Should I take this offer before it ends? Or should I wait some more?
