External hard drive advice

already have a 250gb WD mybook hard drive but this is now full and need something else. whatever choice i make, chances are it won't fill up very quickly, not for the next few months anyway, so i'd rather go for the product thats less likely to have a major price drop for the next few months.
Ideally I'd like a portable hard drive, that will not fail me.

p.s: all the products i found were cheapest at amazon, out of the following retailers : ebuyer.com, dabs.com, pixmania.co.uk, misco.co.uk, play.com.

Here are my "findings"
Portable:
Western Digital elements 160gb HD for £49.99 (see link #1)
Western Digital Passport 160gb HD for £54.90 (#2)

Desktop:
Western Digital Mybook 500gb HD for £72.98 (#3)
Freecom classic 500gb HD for £68.65 (#4)
Seagate 500gb HD for 69.00 (#5)

thanks, but the problem with the portable 250gb one is the power it requires. a lot of people complain their computer usb port don't give enough current and so they need to buy a cable that uses 2 usb ports.

also amazon has it for £79.90
