By "the Maxtor", do you mean this one? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Maxtor-Touch-Firew...e/dp/B000CSJ2EU

 

Its this one. http://www.amazon.co.uk/MAXTOR-ONETOUCH-Ex..._sbs_ce_title_1

 

 

For the price, I would choose neither. A better drive than both of them would be this:

http://www.amazon.com/LaCie-301110U-FireWi...5310&sr=8-1

 

But if you must choose between only those two, I'd go with the WD.

 

I've lost my faith in LaCie after reading the reviews. And the reviews were bad.

Elements drives come in 2.5" so you can take it out and once you have put it in your MPB you can put the old one in the casing! CLEVER HEH??

 

 

SticMAN

 

hehehehe... How am I going to fit a 3.5" in a MBP? :P

 

Regarding the price, its a tad expensive than the other two. but I dont really mind.

Ive actually been doing research for the past few months and most feedbacks from LaCie users had problems with their 500gb HD. The lower capacity has not much problems, but its the 500gb ones. Customers had it for a few months and it broke down. And there were many complaints. As for the Maxtor one Touch, so far so good. Thats why I considered it.

Really? Have you read the reviews at Amazon? They're tough. Maxtor drives have always been quite inconsistent for me, avoid them if you can.

Alright. Yup, the review is not as good even in Newegg unfortunately. customers complained about the HD being slow to start up after idling at some site that I researched. I was going through buffalo and freecom as well, but it seems that I'll be over budget if I would go for those two.
