I have a 500gb external harddrive which I use to play games and watch movies. However, I've noticed that every few minutes, my screen freezes up for like 10 seconds and the external goes crazy.
I need a cheap alternative to my harddrive. Currently, for movies, I load them up on an sd card and watch them from there, but I was wondering if the games will run well from them, as some of them are in excess of 10 gb.
Specifically, I need a cheap external datasource larger than 16gb which won't be affect performance of read intensive applications, preferably in the range of 40c per gig. It must also be portable since I will be carrying it in conjunction with my laptop and harddrive. Storing the applications on my laptop harddrive is not an option as it is filled with work and partitions.
