First of all, thank you for your time to assist me out of the many other threads here. My situation is that I am looking for a good portable and external HD. I am looking for something less than $100 and can work on other products not just Apple. I realize Apple offers a external hard drive solution, and although I do like Apple I am looking for the better deal here. I'm not a networking wiz so I am looking for something that works sorta like the iPods do, where you plug it in and it works. I would like as much space as possible for a cheap price of less than $200 so is this a good deal? I see there are USED products on Apple's store that are cheap but how wise is buying a used external hard drive? I'm sure it come with a warranty and all but really I'd rather not play russian roulette with my data. Can someone please advice me about a good portable hard drive with the features I mentioned? Thanks.
