external hard drives

Alright...tell me what to get. We have about $100 to spend....is that even enough? We really need an external hard drive....
Since I posted my fan page on FB, I have a lot of people wanting me to do photos for them. I am just PB'ing so I am game. It's going to be tough b/c I have a lot going on, but I am excited!

Good question! I have been wanting to get one just as an extra place to store my photos for a "what if". I have them on my computer, burned on CDs in the gun/fire safe, and on snapfish, but I would love another place.

Congrats on getting some PB work! That's awesome!

You can get a 1TB external from either Western Digital or Seagate for about $100, both good brands. Just make sure they have USB 2.0 or better technology. Smile

I have 2 separate external drives from Western Digital and they are GREAT. On top of that, they work equally well w/ my Mac & DH's pc (laptop). And to further tout WD, their tech support is really great.

And, as Meagan said, you can find one for around $100

I just checked Best Buy and they have a 1 TB WD drive on sale for only $80.

do some checking and I'm sure you can find something that will work for you!

And congrats on the PB sessions!!!!!

Best,

No kidding! I wish I could have convinced DH we needed another one, but with just laying out money on a new lens, he's hard to convince right now Wink
