Hello everybody!


i start with saying...........

A Happy Newyear!!!!!

I wish you all the very best and love.


Now for my question.


I would like to know what is the best portable usb 3.0 external HDD for recording my music on.

Because since today i am a very happy new owner of the new Retina Macbook Pro 2.3 GHz, with 8 GB of Ram and 256 GB of Flash.

.... and yes it has the Samsung Retina Display


Since 8 years i use Logic Pro and because the flash is only 256 Gb i want to record on a external drive

and not on the internal storage (and especially now with usb 3.0).

But i would like to know what is the best portible external HDD for this function.

500 GB is enough for me because i have 2x a 2 TB for my Mac Pro and Macbook pro where i make back ups from all my music (2 back ups just to be safe).


Some Examples i saw:


- WD My passport USB 3.0 - 500 GB harde schijf


- G-Technology 500GB G-DRIVE Slim USB 3.0-harde schijf


- LaCie 500GB Rugged Triple USB 3.0 externe harde schijf


- Freecom Mobile drive mg 500 GB harde schijf


- Western Digital My Passport Essential SE USB 3.0 500 GB harde schijf


I would really like some good advise in this.

Hope you guys can help me out with this.
