I am in the market for an external hard drive. My two options are:
This enclosure and an $80 hard drive. Total cost $100.
- The Western Digital WD $150 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2204135&CatId=136
The western digital will be $50 more, but it will have features like a sleep mode that I believe the enclosure system will not have. I guess this will save wear and tear on the drive. The WD will also come with software, but I don’t think that is real important to me.
Are their any other issues I am not thinking about?
