    WD is not a good brand it is a cheap brand
    Id recommend anything but it. i know some people use it but there are shit load of complaints about there drives particularly the low end ones

    well in that case, what would you recommend?
    I'm looking for something cheap, but I can pay a bit more if it means quality.

    Whats wrong with you guys, arent WD and Seagate two of the most solid brands in external drives; my desktop one is WD and has 3 years no problems so far; anyway, its always better to check other options, check seagate, i heard they offer a 5 year warranty in some of their models (freeagent[?])

    Here's a compatibility list if you want to check it out: http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/index.php?tit...patibility_List

    Btw, I use a Verbatim Portable 250 gb hdd and it's working fine. I've been using it for 3+ months now and I've never had a problem with any backups freezing at random times. Also, as a side note, anything over 100 gb is just luxury. I have 70 games and I still have ~50 gb left of games to fill it with, I say just get a nice 50 gb if you're THAT much of a gamer and play many games at once. 20 gb really is enough.

    Hope I helped ^^

    EDIT: Yay 100th post XD
