So I was considering buying an external hard drive and I wanted your guys suggestions and input. I wanted the hard drive more to store files that I may not immediately need and also videos and pictures. The videos that I will be storing aren't anything extravagant. It's actually for a video diary that I keep (sounds weird, but when you're a psych student you realize how important it is to keep all of your thoughts and such and I'm really no good at keeping any kind of actual "book diary"). I don't think that I will need anything over 500 GB, 1TB would be just way too much space I think. I just wanted to know what kinds of external hard drives you guys use and how well they work. I've been looking at the LaCie 500GB Porsche Design P'9223 USB 3.0 Slim Hard Drive. Have any of you guys owned one of these? Are they fast, and are they reliable? Thanks in advance for your advice!
