I need to get a new external hard drive for video editing purposes. I've never actually done the research for this before -- instead I just used the external drives we already had, and they turned out to work fine. Now I'm actually looking around and reading reviews online. It seemed like a lot of people had data-loss problems with Maxtor drives, which is the brand that Costco is stocking now, so I thought I would stick with Western Digital, which is the brand of our current external drives. The more research I do, though, the more I find reviews warning of WD drives failing as well. Maybe it's just the people whose drives fail who are more likely to write reviews. Does anyone have a hard drive brand that they trust and would recommend?
