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.
I bought a 2TB WD Elements external USB3 in June 2014. With the
exception of a few power cuts, it's been switched on 24/7/365. It
receives two system backups per day plus a small amount of other stuff.
It's accessed by Windows 10 and Linux Mint 18.3
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
Can't fault it - I would buy another.
