Re: *RELIABLE* external hard drives NEEDED

I've had a lot of lucky with Western Digital so I cannot recommend another brand from first-hand experience (I have 2, 1 TB drives and 1, 2 TB drive). But I can recommend to you first-hand that if you don't have a USB 3.0 card you ought to get one for your computer, and whatever external drive you get, get one that connects via USB 3.0. It's so much faster than USB 2.0 Well worth the money. Pop the case open. Pop the card in. Easy, easy, easy. And very, very fast. I got a Buffalo Technology DriveStation SuperSpeed USB 3.0 PCI Express 2-Port Interface Card IFC-PCIE2U3 (link below) from Amazon for $32. My 2 TB WD drive is hooked up to it.
