    I need an opinion. I am looking for a external harddrive 500gigs. I have seen the ones that are already together ( free agent, WD book) and I have seen where you can buy a hard drive and a case and put them together yourself. which route is best, and recommendations?

    And the drive will be used just to store data not run games or movies from.

    Any help would be great.

    You can do a little shopping and compare. The enclosure can be had for 12 bucks and the drive around 100 if you dig around. Check for specials and watch for refurbished drives. Newegg, Geeks, PacificGeeks, there's a bunch of reliable places to search. Some come with backup software that may make the assembly a little more expensive. And you can get free software that'll do the same thing. Good luck with your search.
