What is it being used for?
Edited because you forgot to capitalize the first word in your sentence. WTF is wrong with you. English Syntax, noob.
Edited because I did it on purpose and if you ever modify another one of my posts I will purge your unclean existence from the internet; Scorched Earth style.
Edit: do it faggot, you are about as scary as a wilted daffodil
haha, and you couldn't have done this a few months ago when the community was more active? behaviour like that reveals his true nature, and I would imagine this was done out of boredom (no more activity=no more drama).
anyway, we use a lot of Lacie Ruggeds at work, which I've always found great and solid as a rock. When I was at uni (many moons ago) I bought a 500GB WD MyBook out of necessity which is not designed to travel well, but it's been through many moves and even been dropped a few times and continues to soldier on (don't you hate that feeling when you drop a piece of delicate equipment, and you don't know if it's broken yet, and you'll only know when you come to test it)
But yes, I agree with the others, for home backup on one machine, I'd have just added another internal drive.
