questionswhere's the best deal on a 3tb external hard…


If you want 3 TB of space, you're going to have to go with multiple drives- the largest consumer hard drives available max out at 2 TB for a single drive. Getting two 1.5 TB drives is an option, but if you want the space for a single Time Machine backup, you may need a RAID 0 array (two or more drives acting as a single drive). In that case, your cheapest option may be to get a RAID 0 2-drive enclosure like this: (just an option, I haven't really been shopping for these)
and then two 1.5 TB drives. The Western Digital Caviar Green 1.5 TB drives are on sale both at NewEgg and at for about $90 each, and they seem to be very good drives.


Of course, there is the new Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 3TB Black External Hard Drive STAC3000100. It is ONLY available as an external drive so far. Newegg Item #: N82E16822148580
