    I am in the market for a new 2TB external hard drive to back up all my movies, pics and music. Looking to spend under $200. I saw an HP one but read somewhere that it may not work with my Imac. Anyone have any suggestions? Thank you.

    Don't know the details of the manufacturer, but buy.com just sent me an e-mail for this drive: Fantom 2TB G-Force External Hard Drive - Dual Interface (eSATA & USB 2.0)

    on sale for $139.99

    I bought a WD MyBook 1.5TB for about that price at Best Buy.

    You should be able to find something EASILY for under $200.

    As long as the drive connects via USB 2.0 or FW, it doesn't matter who says what, it WILL work with your mac. Just open up Disk Utilities and format it to Mac (Journaled) and you are on your way! :)
