    I am still not able to make up my mind. :cry:

    Another option is to roll your own. Amazon have the 320gb 2.5" sata WD drive for 39.99 which you can use your amazon vouchers on, and you can use paypal to get a 2.5" sata usb enclosure from ebay for about a fiver.

    So for about £45 you get a 320GB 2.5" portable


    Just noticed that Amazon are now out of stock and saying 'Usually dispatched within 2 - 4 weeks' so might be worth keeping an eye on that page.

    i believe tescos usually have a good priced 250gb iomega usb powered harddrive for around £35- 40. Will try find a previous link. Also aldi have Tevion external harddrives pretty cheap too which come with 3 years warranty. If not like above post. Amazon is where i usually shop as there prices change quite often. Hope this helps
