    I recently bought a Mac Mini and wanted to get an additional (external) hard drive for storage of movies, music, etc. Was looking for a 1TB atleast.
    Now I need to have one that can be on 24/7 with no problems. Maybe something that doesn't sound like a jet engine and doesn't get as hot as the sun. The last part... Something that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I currently have a Western Digital 500GB Passport. It works and seems fine.

    I was looking at the following...

    Iomega Mini Max 1TB
    Western Digital 1TB Passport
    Thermaltake BlacX with 1 or 2TB drive

    Thoughts? The only one that I am not sure of is the BlacX because it can't go into any type of sleep mode that IKnow of.

    to be honest I reckon you should make it yourself with a western digital hard drive + case of your choosing. Much better.

    Could you go into further detail of what you are talking about?

    sure thing, its probably good if you have a look through here for something that suits your needs. the cases are very cheap.

    choosing the HDD & enclosure lets you choose your level of quality that you want - you arent limited to what the retail stores have. its often cheaper too!
