    I'm looking to get an external HD that has Raid 1 capability to back up all of my photo's. Does anyone have suggestions?

    [I'm also looking for a portable external Hd with a built in card reader... it does not need to be able to view the photo's, just reliable]

    a 1tb sata external X2
    It works out cheaper to buy a sata external enclosure that can house 1tb sata drive then buy hdd urself and instal it "2 cables"

    then buy a second one hehe ;)

    sorry, i will re-explane.

    its cheaper to buy the components yourself and put it together than it is to buy the equipment ready made.

    here is the 2 things you will need .

    THE HARD DRIVE You will need 2 of these
    &
    THE ENCLOSURE you will need one of these.

    its very simple to install, no software needed
