We are using a Seagate Backup Plus per the recommended guide, however the 1TB version. In three 40 minute recording sessions, one of 2-track, two of 18-track, we experienced maybe five skip events. My unfounded suspicion is that it is the hard drive rather than the Qu-16. One comparison of these external drives showed the Seagate as a lesser performing one. Of course this is just one review. I might try the WD My Passport. OTOH, I might try the Buffalo DriveStation DDR, it is a desktop external drive with 1GB of DDR buffer. It is larger and requires a wall wart but I consider these things to be an acceptable compromise to size if the recording performance is rock solid.
