Anyone have anything good or bad to say about Buffalo external hard drives?

Or would anyone like to recommend another brand; I'm shopping for price, but
I will use this to back up my main HD, so I can't afford a shoddy product.

I've never used Buffalo. My externals are WD, Seagate and Maxtor (now Seagate). If you stick with a name you know you'll be fine. And you can get good buys on them online (check Amazon, Newegg, etc)

I have only ever purchased Dell comptuers, and they always seem to use Seagate. I use them until they die or i decide or when i want to upgrade.
When i upgrade, i have always bought Western Digital.

Ive never had a WD fail (yet) in the 8 years that i have been using them. The Orginal Seagate in my first Dell died after 3 years of use.

The thing to remember with the Buffalo drive is that is the packager. They have an external case and then they put a brand name drive from a hard drive maker into it.

The actual drive could be Western Digital, Seagate, Hitachi, Samsung etc.
