    It looks like either one would do the job. I've used one of the On-the-Go drives with the clear plastic enclosure for over 3 years. It works flawlessly. Fast, quiet, reliable.

    I'm happy to help! By the way, I noticed your accidental duplicate thread that you wanted deleted. If you want a mod to delete a post or deal with any post that you have a concern about, you can click the report post icon [​IMG] on that post and send them a message. I already reported that one for you.

    Thanks. I think my browser refreshed the page that posted the topic, thus two identical topics. Accident on my part. I never double post, unless there's a VERY good reason for it.

    Another satisfied On-the-Go user here, 500 Seagate Momentus installed, fast quiet, and reliable so far (1 1/2 years). If you don't need the eSATA, the extra cost seems like the deciding factor.
    Your call, either will work fine. Even if you only need a smaller disk for your stated purpose, I would suggest getting the largest one you can afford, you can never have too much HD space.

    I am also trying to decide between these two HDs.
    Is there a significant difference between the two?
    Do they both have the same daisy chain capabilities?

    Thanks

    Not significant. Enclosure, max capacity, connectors.
    Yes.
