View Full Version : Looking for the an External Hard Drive

Apr 27, 2004, 08:35 PM

I am a filmmaker and I am looking for the best and highest capacity external hard-drive for the lowest price(under $200).

Both hard-drives on my quicksilver are full and I have no backup.

I will be storing DV footage as well as backup files, and anything else that finds it's way on to it.

I have been saving for a while, and money is very tight, I need something that will be very reliable and hold as much as possible.

I like Lacie, but they are kind of pricey.

know of anything less expensive?

Try checking out a Western Digital External Drive, they make both Firewire and USB 2.0 drives. You can usually find them at a good price Buy.com (http://www.buy.com) or Newegg (http://www.newegg.com). I have had extremely good luck with their drives.

here's a good place to shop


I paid right at $200 for my LaCie 2d DVD-R CD-R burner (if you're thinking back-up) and we paid about $90 each for 2 Maxtor 80gb (internal HDs). A Maxtor 160gb is about $200
