  1. I was going to go for this Seagate 500GB ext. hd but then saw this one for $10 more it has 1TB of space and (according to the customer reviews) has a standard USB 3 cable. I found the same model on bestdirect for less. I have ordered from Memory Express who do price beats but they told me the product is discontinued, probably because of the new Go Flux line. Is this true and does it matter? The person at Memory Express directed me towards another Seagate hd of a different model. I checked out the reviews on newegg and it has 3 stars and says they have discontinued it.

    How important is it to get a non-discontinued product (and why is there a discrepancy between retailers as to what's discontinued?) and how important are the customer reviews?
