    Anyone know the best drive to use as an external backup? I want Firewire800 and found this drive - Seagate FreeAgent™ Desk for MAC 1,5TB,
    FW800, USB 2.0, 7200RPM, 32MB


    Any comments from anyone who has this? Any bad points?

    I purchased the G Tech G Drive 1TB from the Apple store about 4 months ago and it has been great, it is a very fast drive and has been 100% reliable to date.

    I think for a backup this is the way to go.

    A DIY solution isnt bad gives you a chance to pick up a drive to your liking.

    ive had good luck with WesternDigital mybooks and LaCie drives

    tht drive you selected should be fine i have a few 1.5tb drives andthey work fantastic as they should, if thats any assistance to you.
