    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?

    ebuyer.com/pro…564
    ebuyer.com/pro…601
    direct.tesco.com/q/R…spx

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

    Yeah, I have that one for my iTunes collection, really good and fast, although mines was £79.99 when I bought it!

    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.
