    Avoid LaCie drives like the plague unless you like to lose your data. They have the highest failure rate of any drive on the market (along with Maxtor). One search of MacFixItForums.com should show you that they are bad news.

    out of those two I'd go with the Western Digital - I've got one that I use for Time Machine and it works great

    The WD MyBooks have been getting fairly good reviews and I have a couple friends that have them and like them. Go with it.

    I just wish WD would fix their software so the LED capacity light worked with Leopard.
