My new 320GB external harddrive
I invested in a new external hard drive. The hard drive I choose was the Western Digital MyBook Premium 320GB. 320GB should be enough for a couple of years of data. I currently have around 13GB of pictures. The drive is pretty fast and doesn't make that much noise and then it looks good.
If you look carefully at the drive (photo 1, photo 2) you can see that the cover has morse code in it. The morse code has words like "innovative", "reliable", "personal", "design", and "simple in it. Super cool!
The drive also won the "Best in test" in the October 2006 issue of the Danish version of PC World.
I paid around DKK 1.100,- (Danish kroner) for the 320GB. Using the currency converter it's around $190,- which again calculates to $1.7 per GB.
For backup I use the very good and free Cobian Backup. It's a Windows program and it has all the things and features I need. It can do incremental backups, has schedules and a load of other things. And the GUI is nice and simple.
Hehe... that's not $1.7 per GB, rather 1.7GB per dollars, or less than $0.6 per GB...Comment by mortee at February 19, 2007 11:13 PM | Permalink
