    Looking for some help choosing an external hardrive. I have a gift card to Wal-Mart that I want to use so I am limited to the options that are available on their website. Normally I would do Newegg but I want to use this giftcard. I am looking from 250-500gb. I've put links below for a few of their options. Anyone have a strong opinion one way or the other. Thanks in advance, I appreciate it.

    I'd go for the Maxtor myself as it's the cheapest and it's going to have a Seagate drive in it. I believe the warranty is slightly shorter on the Maxtor.
