Two things I'm looking into purchasing soon. Well, one is questionable. - External HDD I'm looking to purchase an external HDD. I don't particularly care how fast it is, but it would be a nice to have speed. I have been looking at the WD Elements or MyBook series. I'd love to get the 1.5TB or 2TB. I'm more interested on reliability. Now, I've heard that the more space in an external, the less reliable it is. So maybe I should get the 1TB, even those price per byte would be better going higher. Does anyone have any personal feedback on a 1TB> ? I've read the reviews and it's either been a hit or a miss. - External Monitor I've been thinking about purchasing an external monitor lately. To be honest, I'm not sure why. It'd be nice to have to hook up to my MBP, but I don't necessarily need it. I have been looking more at 22-24 inch screens, trying to get 2ms, speakers, and HDMI. And not sure whether it should be LED (Looking at Asus and Samsung). I'm probably thinking too much because I think I'd rather save for something else and that I don't really need the external monitor. I'm pretty certain I'll get answers like, "It's ultimately up to you", I know. But maybe someone can sway me one way or the other.
