Default External harddrives...

Somebody talk to me about their experiences with external harddrives please...

I think that I'd need to go with either Firewire or USB2--I know there are new SATA drives out but I don't understand how you connect them to a system...

I also know that people often buy a drive by itself and then put it in an enclosure but I don't know enough about enclosures to make an intelligent decision...

Also...how trustworthy (as in how long to the drives last) are they--the external drives, not necessarily the separate enclosures...

How do you use them--backup only?
