    OPINIONS: Best Hard Drive - Western Digital Special Caviar Edition or
    Other?


    Hello,
    I'm looking for the BEST Big Storage External Harddrive, either with
    enclosure or without. (I can put it in my own case if need be.)


    I am seeing a lot of complaints about drive failures on the Western
    Digital Special Caviar Editions. People are saying they fail after 6
    months. This concerns me of course. But I don't know another brand that
    may be better.

    I had a Maxtor, and that broke after 2 months! I need something REALLY
    STABLE.


    I need the best 250 GB to 500 GB drive around for video editing in Final
    Cut Pro, costing under $500 per 500 GBs.


    Any help would be great!!!!!!

    I recently switched from using Western Digital to Seagate, mainly because of
    the 5 year warranty. The WDs I have work just fine so I don't have any
    complaints with them, I just like the longer warranty. They all go into
    external 5 1/4" USB/1394 cases that have a fan in them. I can't stress
    enough the importance of having that fan. It goes a long way towards
    extending the life of the drive.
