Oh so tempted....seagate external hard drives....

Post by Palehorse » Mon May 25, 2009 10:46 pm

I'm thinking of getting an external harddrive to back up data without resorting to piles of Dvds, but I've been hearing problems about seagate external harddrives.

I guess what I'm asking is whether it's worth the risk of HD failure/RMA to buy a 1 or 1.5 TB external hard drive considering that buyer comments have been mixed (with some saying that the firmware CCH1 = good).

One Seagate deals thread with lots of comments

Another Seagate thread

Newegg 1 TB HD

i'd recommend western digital personally.

or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6822136321

the first one is probably a more solid choice.

I've never had a problem out of Seagate. And actually the only two hard drives I've ever had that failed were both Western Digital. heh... But they were both 5 years + old. But the next person might come along and say the only ones they had fail were Seagates. Either way, they both have some of the best hard drives out there. Pick either... You can't go wrong.
Shhh! Theres a dead horde in my trunk. Wanna see it? Fuck around and you'll be it.
