What brand of external hard drives do most of you guys use? It'd be nice to find one that is all aluminum (and reliable) to go with Mac design. And I know this question as been asked before, but I haven't found satisfactory replies when searching this forum, but here it goes: Is the Time Capsule worth it in light of the 18 month self destruct switch. Seems like the problem is bad internals and an enclosed space with poor cooling. The design hasn't changed, so this thing seems destined to fail. I have a cisco router that works perfectly fine, I don't need a new one. But the wireless back up seems really convenient. But not at the cost of an inevitable device failure that Apple will not repair, and will not let you recover your data without breaking your warranty.
