    Vote for the external HD you use with your Mac. What has been most reliable? What has been complete crap? What is the best value? Make your voice heard!

    I have a 500 GB Western Digital MyBook Pro. It's got USB 2.0, FW 400 & FW 800. Its relatively quiet and very fast so I can run games off it in boot camp with no difference in performance.

    I really like my OWC Mercury Elite from www.macsales.com. It has a Seagate drive inside, but it's more than just a Seagate drive. It has a beautiful aluminum case, great Oxford chipset, and a nice USB2/Firewire 400 option on back. Highly recommended.
