Hi All

I am looking for an IDE hard drive to use in an external USB case to use as an external backup device to supplement the one I have already got.

I am looking at 2 choices so far: -

click here(17333)500GB-Western-Digital-ATA100-7200rpm-16MB.aspx


click here(17679)750GB-Seagate-Hard-Disk-Drive-IDE-ATA100.aspx

Which would you all recommend and why?

I would like to use whatever is recommended with my Pentium 4 computers (2 of them) - one is 3.2Ghz and the other is 2.4Ghz. I have got all of the latest drivers and Windows Updates applied.

Both PCs can use USB2 okay.

Please let me know - all responses gratefully received.

I don`t think you`ll notice any difference except for the obvious size of the disks.

I agree with Taff™. Most reptable HD's are very reliable and most of them run at the same speed.

What else do you need?

Just look around for a good price.

reptable should be reputable!

Thanks to all those that replied - I have decided to purchase the 750GB Seagate Hard drive.
