I'm looking for another external drive or two. My usual source has both
Seagate/Lacie and Western Digital. It looks like 1 or 2TB are the
smallest ones these days.
Lacie prices are double Seagate models of same capacity - is Lacie the
better quality version of Seagate?
Western Digital models are generally in same price range as Seagate.
Or should I look at other brands? I'm willing to spend up to about
$100/terabyte for greater reliability.
All advice and recommendations gratefully received and carefully
I use two external WDC Elements, 2 TB; one for my wife's Win10 backups
(2 boxes) and one for various functions on my Slackware box.
Currently ~8,000 hours on mine with no errors logged.
According to my best recollection, I don't remember.
