Hello, I have been filling up my large hard drive and am shopping for an external hard drive just for photos. I look in the Sunday newspaper ads and see all the external hard drives, but I wanted to ask you guys which ones you prefer. As far a size goes, I will have to think about how much I want to spend, but I just wanted to ask you guys if there was a brand that you thought was better than another. I have heard that some are noisy and some are quiet, etc... I really don't think I will need a smaller portable one, but just one to sit next to my PC. Thanks for any help that you guys can offer me.
