    Default External Hard drive

    Can anyone give recommendations for a good external hard drive? It doesn't need to be really small, because I don't intend to move it around. Efficient, quick access is my main priority, and of course, price.
    Thanks

    I've a 250g external hard drive. I think is it a Seagate and it is definitely 7200 RPM which is much faster than the 5400RPM ones.
    It was very easy to install - just plugged it into a USB slot and gave it a name. Now it just appears as Drive G under My Computer just like the internal hard drive which is Drive C.

    I too have a seagate, but I believe it's only a 160GB. But the prongs on the plug in part on the back of the unit bent down in-so I had to buy a new casing for it. Was very disappointed about that. If you go to tiger direct they often times have sales on them and you can pick them up relatively cheap. That's where my computer techie guy gets his from. I found that out after I bought mine from a local Walmart.
