Well I'm looking to pick up an external harddrive for my laptop as the 60 Gig harddrive on it is basically full. It will be mainly just to store music and movies. What I've had in mine is this Western Digital 120Gig HD, 7200rpm, 8meg buffer, <9.5ms avg seek time. http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=711388 Is there any other names I should look into? I'd like to keep it under $300Cdn (about $225 US). Also, is USB 2.0 or Firewire a faster interface? Thanks everyone!
