    In a few months I'll be traveling and I need some way to store a bunch of movies and tv shows. Would you suggest the Kingston WiDrive or Seagate GoFlex Satellite or something else? Thanks!

    I work in television and need to travel with a ton of pilots and documentaries to watch while away. I have the Kingston and love it. Simple to load up, connect to and use. Plus it's very thin and light.

    I got the SanDisk Media Drive because, in addition to its internal memory, it has an SD card slot. That allows me to view and/or save photos from my camera while traveling. The device only has 64GB internal memory, though, but you can add to this with SD cards.

    I have the GoFlex Satellite and take it with me on long trips. It allows me to take my entire iTunes library with me anywhere I go.

    A friend has the Seagate Go Flex. Neat little device. I'd recommend it.

    I have both the 32gb WiDrive and the 1st gen GoFlex. Unfortunately, the WiDrive is quite useless to me, it will only work if formatted in Fat32, so no files larger than 4gb. I purchased the WiDrive because I found the GoFlex a little cumbersome to carry with me on a daily basis, but it's just collecting dust now since it's much more of a hassle worrying about file sizes.
