Hi folks, sorry to bug you with an IT question. Can anyone recommend a 2TB external HD for mac?
Seagate are pretty reliable. I'd avoid Lacie, they only make enclosure not hard drives and thye can be somewhat unreliable.
Some people swear by OWC products like the Guardian Maximus for a RAID solution, never used em but have heard good things.
I got the 1TB Nas version and I do not like it at all sir. Slow, refuses to mount without restarting a lot, problems copying files and refused to be seen at all on my mac due to a permissions error.
Found it to be very flaky.
I have that 2TB LaCie pictured above, but the wireless version. Nice drive, very easy to install. Only minor complaint is slow transfer speeds over wireless. Then I remind myself, "You're move files THROUGH THE AIR, dumbass!"
+1 for seagate. anyone use firewire 800?
Glyph all the way.
Lacie sucks. If you ask a guy at a computer shop, they will say Lacie sucks.
Well, those PC advisers probaly never used one.
Get a normal hard drive (2.5" or 3.5") and an USB enclosure.
I have had about 10 Lacie HDs. After 8 failures, I switched over to G-Tech and now to Glyph.
