I'm thinking about getting an external hard drive just to put songs on and media. I want one thats plug and play (no software installation!), around 80-100gb and for around £50. Can anyone recommend any? thanks

I got one of these and its fast and quiet and a great price. Just need a USB 2.0 connection for fast speed, but works with USB 1.1 a bit slowly (limitation of USB 1.1 not the hard drive)

If you can get access to a costco they have a couple of reasoanbly priced, saw a 500gb on here earlier, may be worth a look as warranty is good with them

hi there, i've been looking around for an external hard drive too, and while just a little search would have got you what you were looking for, i'll give you the information anyway.

I personally have been looking at the following two [u] portable [/] hard drives

Portable:
Western Digital elements 160gb HD for £49.99 (see link #1) (also available from ebuyer)
Western Digital Passport 160gb HD for £54.90 (#2)

You can find some 250gb/320gb desktop external hard drives for the same price

I got a My Book 320 GB a year ago, and now you can get this for 59,99, or even a 500GB version for a tenner more. I know you wanted a smaller one, but belive you me, they do get filled up quickly.
