Guys: I’m in the market for a new internal SATA hard drive AND an external hard drive, and I need your recommendations.
I plan on using the internal SATA with a Thermaltake enclosure to back up my laptop (the Seagate drive that I was using previously no longer mounts and makes a clicking noise). I plan on using the external drive as a NAS to back up my boot drive and act as a music file server.
For both, I’m looking at 1GB size drives with USB2 connectivity. (I don’t have USB3 on either of my Macs.)
What mechanisms / drive enclosures do you use? What has worked most reliably for you? Share your recommendations (and reservations) in the comments below.
Thanks in advance!
