i'm in the market for a solid external hard drive. i will be using it to store pictures thus freeing my computer the chance of corrupting the HD and losing my pics (it has happened).

what do you recommend under $150?

The 1TB WD My Book Essential editions have been on sale for $99 at Best Buy and Staples for a while now... we've bought a ton of them at the office and they seem to do fine.

I just bought one of these a couple of weeks ago, and it seems to be doing fine. I lost all my stuff when my PC crashed about a month or so ago, and I got this in order to save photos and documents in the future. It is a Western Digital, also.

The one listed in the above post may be more what you want, though. I don't need an enormous amount of space.

Externals seem to go bad pretty often, but if you just use them to backup they're probably fine.

    • Running a more advanced college style, fun and gun type system, could be the future for a lot of teams.  Chip Kelly flamed out, but he may have just been too early. Get the players who a. have thrived in similar systems, and b. create mismatches with your "typical" NFL defenders and attack attack attack.    I mean, even imagine our no huddle/hurry up offense right now...Stew, McCaffrey, Fozzy, Samuel, Cam all capable of carrying the ball (in a variety or play designs).  Now we have a couple guys with speed to stretch the field, or work short crossing routes and YAC galore.  Meanwhile, KB and Funch will (hopefully) improve and be able to use their big frames to body smaller defenders.  Olsen is Olsen. Defenses will have to play a guessing game and pick their poison trying to stop this offense when it wants to put its foot on the gas. A LOT of possibilities and freedom for this offense...potentially. 
    • Misleading. Tyreke Hill would have gotten drafted much much earlier if not for the domestic violence
