Guys I have been looking for a reliable external/portable hard drive for a year, and cannot get an unbias review from any source. I was looking at the Toshiba 500gb...and the Seagate Free Agent 500gb, but they both have gotten both bad and good reviews. Though the Seagate has gotten more good. My eyes are bleeding, I just really want a drive to backup my files on my Mac, in time machine AND put some more storage on without dieing of the price...or because it failed. I know they all fail sometimes, but overall which fail the least? And what about ministack are they worth the price? Sincerely fed up girl, with low hd space!!
