Great 500 GB External Hard Drives for Time Machine

Leopard has introduced a neat feature called “Time Machine”. It’s a great backup utility with easy to use interface. Now that you have this utility, you also need a place to save the backup. Otherwise, it won’t save you when the internal hard disk fails.

One user has asked me to find a good external hard drive for him. After researching for a couple of hours, I have found two drives that have good reviews.

The LaCie‘s drive looks nicer and is cheaper (around $129.00 at the time of the post). The Seagate‘s drive has 5-year warranty which is rare for external hard drive, and it’s more expensive (around $143.00).
