Iím looking to buy a 500gb external hard drive for backing up purposes. I plan on using it on both my MacBook Pro and my old PC (I canít find the specs at the moment its in a box). These are the candidates I have found so far:
LaCie Porsche Design External 500GB Hard Drive
£66.88 (might be able to save £15 if I get it with an amazon mastercard) 2 year limited warranty
Iomega 500GB USB2.0 External Hard Drive
£68.61 unknown warranty
How stable are external hard drives? Iíve heard of people who clone their standard hard drive, running windows or osx onto an external hard drive which leads me to believe that an external hard drive must be more stable.
Is there anything I can do to an external hard drive to make it less stable?
All help is welcome
