I have always been a fan of buying bare drives (usually Seagate) and cases and building my own externals but I am in the market for something quick and easy in a 2 TB solution. I have been looking at the LaCie by Neil Poulton 2TB as well as the Western Digital MyBook Essential 2TB. I can get the WD at Costco for $190. The LaCie run around $225-$250. The WD retails for about that as well. Costco doesn't carry the WD MyBook for Mac but it just needs to be reformatted. Any opinions on either case manufacturer. I know drives are drives for the most part. Just never bought an external before where I didn't put it together. Thanks.
