Are there any good, reliable external hard drives that you guys recommend? I have pic related. It's ok. It kind of leaves me paranoid because it fails to turn on at times. Also, it's only 500GB, not a full TB.

Also, I just checked out the /g/ wiki and it lead me to this article: https://wiki.installgentoo.com/index.php/External_hard_drive

Which I guess sounds plausible.

So, recommended external/internal hard drives?

Fuck no, I use externals to stay away from that normie crap.

recommend their external or internal?

Both. They currently make the most reliable drives. WD isn't bad either. Just stay away from seagate.

do you guys remember when seagate was good? I remember.

My 160gb seagate barracuda is the only seagate drive that didn't die on me. They seemed to go to shit around the time they bought maxtor. A 120gb maxtor drive melted my sata power cables.

my 1tb barracuda was purchased 4-5 years ago and is still working gr8

>>51455881
what is that?

Like a hard drive dock but in an internal 5.25" bay.
>>
>>51456180
quick change hard drive bay for 5.25" slots to be exact, you can see the sata connectors.

it gets really rare and now USB3/external Sata cables are common, it's easier anc cheaper to get an external dock for this job.
>>
Question: If I buy an internal hard drive, and an external case or dock would I have to buy anything else to power it, plug it in via usb, etc? Or do I just plug in the internal and it works?

HGST's external drives look ok, but they have cloud storage installed on them. I guess I could just wipe them clean as soon as I take them out of the box though.

Mines 2tb and it works great
