I have a WD 500GB External Drive and it hasn’t failed me yet in the last 2 years of constant use :D. I whole-heartedly endorse the brand but I suggest checking out other retailers instead of buying direct from the manufacturer to see if you can get a better deal…

Have the exact same HD although in the 1TB version. I have it about a year and a bit. Never caused me any trouble whatsoever.

Also, if I fancied getting a dual Ethernet enclosure some time in the future, will I be able to use the same drives? :)
