I've read the threads on external HDs but was wondering about everyone's opinions and enclosures/manufacturers that they liked.
Usually I just use the reviews on NewEgg for stuff like this, but I purchased a Vantec/Nexstar 3.5" USB 2.0 one a month or so back that was rated 5/5. It finally died a few days ago, and before that, it worked unreliably, flat-out not showing up on some systems, and registering fine on others. Not what I had in mind.
So, what do you rely on to keep your external hard drives protected and accessible?
Manufacturers and specific models are more important to me than transfer protocol/ports.
