[citation][nom]lljones[/nom]Not so much decade as country. Thank you for further proving my point. I did find a 500g for $50 but it is a seagate and I have had very bad luck with them, others may have had great success, not me however. So I will have to shell out an extra $7 to get a WD.Decade is a little long, you should have used year instead. In 2000 80g was $475ish. It was about 2007 that prices really started to fall. So in actuality, you should have said "where have you been the last couple of years?". I would have also accepted the phrase "few years". I promise to do more research in my next post so that I am not out by that crucial 180 gigs which seems to have so disturbed you. My apologies.[/citation]
Take a chill pill, dude. I meant no offense.
"Well if your concerned about your house burning why don't you have a fire proof safe? They are fairly cheap and you could put your portable drive in there. As for people stealing your stuff at work, I would change places of employment. I have scan tools worth literally $5,000 and have not once worried about locking my tool box because I trust the guys I work with.
I also have a very neat tool for sending files and photos to friends, uploading songs etc. It's called my computer.
Don't get me wrong, if you want to pay for a device and then pay someone to use that device for you, more power to you, it's your money, give it away however you want."
And +1 to this
