I've finally maxed out my 500GB Portable External HD, and am looking to switch to a 3.5" 2TB External Hard Drive. I need the most secure external drive possible - even if it costs a premium - because it'll be used to store very important data from time to time.

Any suggestions?

I'm in the same boat as Keane.

What about the Seagate GoFlex 2TB external drive for 5500 (price from Delta)? It has an USB 3.0 upgrade option as well.

I'm leaning towards this for now. Any good reasons I should not buy the same? Is 5500 a good price for this drive?

I am using Trancend External Casing. which supports USB + Esata (excellent speed).

Reason, I can change Internal HDD by myself in case of problem or to make extra copy.

Ordered a WD Essentials 2TB Drive. Had the best reviews of all the ones I checked out. Hopefully it works well.
