    Looking to buy a USB powered portable HDD for my 2.4GHz MacBook narrowed it down to the iomega eGo helium or the WD my passport. Any opinions??

    If you're picky about drives, you could get an enclosure and the drive of your choice to DIY your own. ;)

    I don't know if you'd save any money by using smaller drives, but it tends to work out better as the capacity is increased. Last I looked anyway. :p

    Actually, I've had good luck with WD lately. Most of it is with their enterprise line, but I do have a few Caviar Blacks.

    It's hard to get past being burned though. ;) I've little faith in Hitachi's consumer models for just that very reason. :p
