    I have had absolutely no problems with my Western Digital MyBook 1TB. After leaving a game paused for a long time, the drive will indeed spin down, but it never has any problem spinning back up... worst case scenario, the game freezes for 1-2 seconds while the drive catches up. I love it, and it allows plenty of room for a FAT partition as well, since you'll never fill the whole TB without installing every Petz and minigame compilation in existence.
