I'm looking for a fast external hdd for my mbp, also it needs to be at least 500gb. I'll be editing pictures and videos off it. Any suggestions?

Thanks. I've just ordered that exact one. I already have the WD MyStudio I 500GB, so would i connect them together? If so, in what way? My plan was to run all my photos/videos/music from my new HDD and use my 500gb as my time machine hdd.

Connect FW cable from computer to MyStudio II . Connect the remaining FW port (MyStudio II) to the FW port on the MyStudio I. :)
Easy. ;)
