    Looking for a PORTABLE external hard drive

    - Size is not so much of an issue, doesn't matter if its 40 gbs or 1tb to me.
    - No external power supply
    - Less than 40 quid if possible
    - has to be the portable ones

    First post so sorry if i'm posting in the wrong place.
    Thanks.

    I bought this last week from amazon. Good price for the size, you can get more capacity for a little bit more money, or a better looking drive but this is solid and pretty straight forward to use. Its a little over your budget but still a good value drive

    Looks great but people seem to be having some problems in reviews:
    Slow transfer speed
    Needs 2 usb ports to power up under mac?? My main laptop is a mac..

    So it doesnt look too convincing. After looking round for quite a while, I ended up buying this one:

    # 1 of: Western Digital My Passport Essential 250GB USB Portable External Hard Drive

    As it works well with a Western Digital 1080p media player and my friend recommended it.

    133 quid for the hard drive and the player together, doesnt seem too bad.
