External Hard Drive good deal?

I have a question about these two hd's. The hd that is 1TB is only $15 more than the 500GB hd. Is there anything else that's different?

The only thing that's different is the size.

Thanks, I don't understand why it's only $15 more when it's double the size.

Double the size? I'd bet that the two units have exactly the same dimensions...






Now, capacity, well, that's a different story!





Hey, if they're cheap enough, I recommend buying them in pairs. Use one as your regular storage drive, like you want, and use the second one as a mirror clone backup of the first one. Safety first! Don't lose your data!!!
