Best External Hard Drives: LaCie d2 Quadra vs. Seagate Free Agent Go

Updated on June 27, 2012

Which is Better? What's your review of these External Hard Drives.

I've been told I need to stop using writable USB flash drives, CDs or DVDs to backup my PC data storage and archiving on my computer.

To that end, the 2 external hard drives I've decided to use in this review are recommended by ConsumerSearch.com.

The LaCie d2 Quadra and Seagate Free Agent Go have captured the 2 tops spots in their Top 4 Review. The models chosen differ from each other in a few ways. For example:

They have different data storage capacities. One is 500 GB (gigabytes), the other is 250 GB.

One is portable, the other is a desktop model.

Help me out and give your honest reviews. If you haven't purchased one of these external hard drives, which would you choose?

Don't like either? Let us know why in the guest book below. Good, bad, or indifferent, your reviews will help make the decision of which external hard drive I, and possibly others, should purchase.
