I have a Seagate GoFlex 2 TB (with power).. I bought it a year ago for about 120 or 130 $, can't remember the exact price.. It's very good and convenient, never had a problem...

It is an external HD... with power ya3ne it has a power supply, needs to be plugged to electricity, not like some other HD that have just a USB cable... Goflex is just a name I think... I'm not into details and features like this, this HD was recommended to me by a friend.

WD Passport 1TB 2.5" 5400RPM USB3.0 & USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive (Midnight Black/Red) | $104.00 | hw-e15

I advice you to buy it Slim USB Powered, way easier to carry around.

Anyway im thinking one of these :
http://www.seagate.com/external-hard...s/goflex-desk/ - 136$
or
http://www.seagate.com/external-hard...on-hard-drive/ - 148$

My knowledge about these is ZERO , on the website they provide limited information , so much information is appreciated , whats the difference? what are the features?
both need independent power else than the usb ? need details pleasee.
