    hello, wondering if anyone can help or advise as im not good with technology, hence backing up my data is crucial

    i want a portable hard drive around 250gb, so far on amazon ive found 2 which come in my budget and have good rating,

    any advise on which i should go for:-

    1)250GB NESO "hard drive by HITACHI" External USB 2.0 Portable Hard Drive
    amazon.co.uk/250…top

    or

    2)Western Digital My Passport Essential 250GB USB Portable External Hard Drive
    amazon.co.uk/Wes…1-1

    thank you for any help, much appreciated

    I'd go for the Hitachi one as I have read some dire stories about Western Digital Harddrives. Go for the biggest harddrive you can afford because 250Gb is quite small nowadays.

    I have this, but it's the 1Tb version. Very quiet and turns off with the PC.
