I knew I had to buy an external hard drive to back up my files, eventually … or risk losing all my important documents, photos and itunes, if my computer died. But I procrastinated for over a year, because I didn't know what to get and had to do some research to make a choice. I knew not to cut corners, and naturally, I wanted the largest capacity for the least amount of money.
What I got was a , which features:
1) 1TB external eSATA and USB 2.0 interface
2) a super fast 300MB/s eSATA port
3) a silent fan-free design
4) a compact aluminum body, weighing in at 2.4 pounds
5) It's PC and Mac compatible.
6) It comes with a drive stand and a USB 2.0 cable.
And as its name suggests, GreenDrive, is environmentally friendly. It's designed to use 40% less power without sacrificing performance.
I ordered my external hard drive though MacMall and used two $25 rebates for a $50 savings. My final cost: $80, including shipping. Not too shabby for a non-techie, eh?
