    Hello. I am in the market for a new external hard-drive to store a bunch of music, movies, photos, old projects, etc..

    Here's what I need:

    1. High capacity (5TB or greater)
    2. USB 3.0
    3. 7200rpm or greater (not a 5400rpm)
    4. Under $300

    Can anyone make a recommendation on what I should get? Thank you for all the help! :D

    I just bought a couple Seagate external hard drives. USB 3 drive 5TB in size for $180 a piece. Didn't plug then into my Mac, just my Linux box for backups. They've been working great so far. Should work fine in a Mac once you re-format them.
