My 500GB external HD and 400GB internal HD are full. So I need to buy a new hard drive so I can basically empty those other 2 hard drives. I would like to hear some personal opinions of a good 2TB external hard drive for me (from people who actually own them). I don't want to purchase some POS which breaks down straight away and causes me to lose all my data. My current 500GB external HD is pretty much like this and constantly disconnects from the computer causing in corruption of files and the like, it is USB powered and every computer I have found doesn't provide enough power to keep it alive and with some computers it even causes BSODs. My budget is around ~$250AUD and I would prefer to purchase from an actual store. Currently I am considering the following: WD Elements 2TB Desktop Hard Drive - $199 Seagate Expansion 2TB Desktop Hard Drive - $248 WD MY Book Essential 2TB Desktop Hard Drive - $249 Do any of those possible purchases look like bad choices? At the moment I'm swaying towards the last item in the list because it looks like it would be more reliable then the other 2 but if anyone else can recommend me an alternative 2TB external HD around the same price that they have been using for a while that would be great.
