    I was looking into a 250gb external harddrive and was wondering what I should stay away from and what to look for, I was looking at seagate, ultra and maxtor. The main difference I see is buffer levels between 6-12mb. What would you suggest?

    for an external drive, 7200rpm and 8mb is all you need. I'd grab a Western Digital 2500JB Drive.

    keep an open mind to buying the hard drive and external enclosure seperatley. It could save you a ton.
