External Harddisk

Member for

hey, wasn't too sure where to put this but i'm looking for an external harddisk to purchase.

Been looking around and as i'm a PC user but am starting to work with a mac i'm not too sure on what hardware is good.
not knowing where to get good equipment i just went to apple store to see what they support and found this item

G-DRIVE 250GB External Hard Drive

have any of you heard of the companys rep?

or would you like to suggest a good external harddisk that is reliable, fast and can do some good storing for audio recording :)

thanks

I usually roll my own.....been using Maxtors steadily with no problems. I buy them and drop them into a Lian Li RH40 or RH58 drive caddy, then that assembly fits into a USB2 or Firewire case connected to my PC. Much less expensive than buying a ready made external drive. You can find all the component pieces at:

I know many people are also partial to Seagate and IBM hard drives. Good luck!

Thank you very much for the link.

That is definitely a nice $$$ return for just the time it takes to read a little and turn a few screws.
