    I've had a 250gb WD Essential for over a year now & it's worked flawlessly, in fact i've just sold it & got myself the 640gb version.

    ok but i want to know which has the better specs out of these 3 as i don't know much about external hard drives.

    It probably won't make a great deal of difference which you buy. They've probably got the same drives inside the enclosures, and performance is bottlenecked by USB (which peaks at about 30MB/s, whereas all drives are capable of around 100MB/s when they're connected via SATA, eSATA, or Firewire) in any case. Just buy the one with the case that looks the nicest.
