Getting a new harddrive, what should i get?

  1. I am interested in getting a new external hard drive for my computer, but im not sure which to get. I am hoping for one thats 500 gb, or 1 tb. I will be using it to store recorded movies from fraps, and to back up my data. Does anyone have some suggestions?

    Do you plan on actually sharing it with anything else?

    Reason I say is you might be best getting an internal drive if its a PC. It'll work a lot faster as well.

    Most external drives are pretty similar though, whats your budget?

    I want a external hard drive, because i want to be able to use it with my netbook and on my friend's computer. My budget is under $280, but obviously the lower the better. I want a high write speed, as i want to record fraps movies at 1920X1080.
