I got a 750gig Free Agent at Costco, with a coupon. Wish I'd gotten two or three!

It seems much more bombproof than my two or three (more?) year old Seagate and Maxtor USB hard drives. I thought it was slow but I think it was the other computer, which had a number of peculiar issues. I used it to transfer all the data files I could find from the old computer and it got them onto the new one's D drive toot sweet. Not so fast as the internal drives, but not so slow either. It's compact and runs pretty cool. I like it a lot. Maybe Costco will do it again sometime.

PS This drive comes with a USB connector and a Firewire kit, sort of, with a Firewire out. Haven't tried it, saving Firewire ports until I see what obligate Firewire stuff I'll have to plug in.
