I'm looking at getting a new external HDD for backup and storage for my Mac mini and my wife's Windows 7 PC. I currently have a 640 GB external all-in-one that works fine, but I want an extra level of backup and additional storage space for now and the future. I'm looking at doing a 3.5" SATA with an enclosure.
Here's what I'm considering:
Seagate Barracuda 3 TB HDD SATA 6 Gb/s NCQ 64MB Cache 3.5-Inch Internal Bare Drive ST3000DM001
Macally G-S350SU Hi-Speed eSata/USB2.0 External Storage Enclosure for 3.5inch SATA HDD
As for price, I want to keep it at or below $150. The cheaper, the better, but I also don't want to sacrifice quality for price.
