I'd like to point out that I never had a Seagate product fail. Of
course, that could be luck. They come with 5 year warranties.

Of course, I probably just cursed one of my drives by mentioning I had
no failures. I've built PCs for people that would spend the extra money
for a Seagate and had the drives arrive DOA. More than once mind you.
One was from IBM, and the other Fujitsu, a company I thought had it's
act together.

If you get external drives, consider spending a bit more and get esata.
I have this general distrust of USB.

These people advertise heavily on

I have no idea if the service is any good, but it is online offsite
storage, and relatively cheap. Offer code I believe is Leo, but you
could just listen to any of his podcasts and get the code.

The offsite service is handy in the event of fire or theft.
