Seagate has a storage solution for all you digital pack rats out there. The 400GB Seagate External Hard Drive ($399 list) offers a copious reserve of disk space that lets you store and back up your video files, digital photos, music, and more.
When we last visited Seagate’s external backup drive (the company’s product-naming department must be understaffed these days), it sported a mere 160GB courtesy of the company’s seventh-generation 7,200rpm hard drive. Seagate just released a second-gen...
