I'm looking for a new external hard drive, something around 100-150GB's (or maybe 160) and had a few questions for you folks.

What brands do you suggest?
Is the "One Button Back-up" any good on some of these drives?
Are there ones I can piggy back so I can add more drives in the future without having to run 10 wires to my computer?

Yeah theres one you can piggy back, but cant think of the brand. Best Buy sold it last I seen.

I have a Buslink 80GB USB2.0/firewire. Nice thing is you can later put bigger HD's in them also. if you want.

I have 2 Acom Data 250 gig and 1 Acom 80 gig externals. The 80's been running non stop for the last 3 years with no problems. I don't recall what I paid for them but I know they were relatively inexpensive at Comp USA.

are externals only good for storage?
Could I play games off it, smaller games like rom files?
