"Love these Drives!"5.0 starson by JonathanPDX
Pros: I currently have 5 of these puppies. They run and run and run. Plenty of space for data and app storage, and work well for backups, too.
Cons: No external power.
No Firewire 800.
Should be armored (rubberized) against shock.
Connection cable way too short.
Better padded cases.
Indicator to tell when drive is 'disconnectable."
Summary: Always a fan of Western Digital. With the increased no-hassle warranty against problems and such, plus a decent cost, they are small enough to keep a few around just in case they're needed. Picked up mine at my local warehouse store for $139.99 (whoa! they're $15 off that right now!)
