    Default Good HDD for TimeMachine?...
    Hello all, I'm wondering which Hard Drive should I buy for my iMac to use TimeMachine...?

    I have a 500GB Western Digital and a 250GB Maxtor, but I need something of at least 1.5TB. I've been reading a lot of reviews, but I can't find any good big HDDs...I've been leaning tpward LaCie, but they're quite pricey...

    So, any ideas? Thanks in advance!

    There are tons of 2TB drives out there by Maxtor and Seagate for less than $150. If you want reviews go to Newegg

    get the apple time capsule. you will not be disappointed, ever.

    and it comes with an airport extreme built in. so it doubles as a kick tail router. I know this thread is old, but I wanted to throw that out there
