Default External Hard Drive for a MAC??

Looking to pick up an external hard drive to store all of my music/movies/videos on. I have looked into a number of different options. Seagate or Western Digital look to be the best options/highest rated. Not looking to spend a ton on one($100-125). If you have any expeirence, any help is appreciated. Thanks

Back in April, I brought two Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Desk 2TB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drives for $140 each. I have two drives so I can back up the second drive off the first one. They work fine and I haven't had a problem with them. 2TB is a lot of space and it's so cheap now, it's worth it. I had a Lacie for 4 years before that before it conked out on me.

if you have a USB3.0 port, get a drive that is USB3.0 compatible. The difference in speed is huge.
