how does the Seagate compare to the Passport?

I don't know if this is current, but here is Dan's opinion.

AFAIAC, any brand name drive should last you a decent amount of time if you don't abuse it, and if you do none of them will last. If you're storing anything you can't replace, make sure to keep current backups.

P.s. It seems like Dan beat me to the punch.

1. You snooze you lose.
2. The better the deal, the shorter it's alive.

Still available. Just ordered 3 (sucks that that's the limit, would've taken more and flipped it for a profit, although it might work on multiple orders, gotta check that out now) and with free amazon prime shipping, it should be here soon :)

IF it goes back in stock in the near future, do u think they'd honor the price of my cancelled order?
