    Only two products. I don't see much of them in retail stores.

    I agree with Ben, the vendors are plenty, go with your size needs and whether you want a USB powered compact one or an external powered full size. I've seen issues with the WD MyBook products (the controller board fails) but their other products are good.

    I doubt if those drives are made by Sony. They are just putting their name on them. Go with WD or Seagate.
