    Hi;

    I need a external hard drive to backup:

    2 desktops(200gb and 150gb)
    1 laptop (100 gb)

    all running win 7 pro 64bit
    I'll likely use win 7 backup program instead of proprietary
    I need to create system image of the 3 pc's and occasional incremental backup
    want usb 3.0
    something that works well--WD or Seagate 1 gb or more
    I would like to purchase from amazon(prime shipping and NO tax)

    Thanks in Advance!!

    What about using a network-connected drive, over a gigabit network it's pretty handy and you don't have to carry it around as you go from computer to computer. I think there are versions that can connect to the network and also connect to USB?
