External Hard Drive

I'm looking for an external/portable hard drive to back up all my data on my computer. I don't really need anymore that 250gb - in fact 160gb is sufficient. However I'm unsure which to buy. I only have a limited budget of a max £50 (but ideally want to pay no more than £40)

I'm trying to trade off size vs price, and come to a compromise.

I've seen the following.... can anyone give me any advice or guidance?

Or can anyone else recommend a cheap reliable hard drive with at least 160gb? (particularly from suppliers that have quidco or discount codes)

Thanks for that but I'm led to believe that that deal has expired and they are now back to full price. Thanks anyway though!

Just a FYI.

The desktop ones like the three ebuyer ones listed in this thread are higher capacity but they require a mains adapter for power as well as being a lot bigger and heavier. (four or five times the weight)

The portable ones like the maxtor as Tesco as USB powered and much better if you're going to be moving it around a lot. This Western Digital Portable Elements 250GB for £42.54 delivered at ebuyer looks like a good deal at the moment.
