Im just wondering what is a decent External hard drive to buy?

I dont want one to big but to small and i have no idea what i should get. My computer is a 160Gg hard drive and its half full but i still want to get a external hard drive so i can talk stuff for my laptop to desktop.

What should i get?

100Gb
160Gb
360Gb
500Gb
750Gb

Well. My dad has a Lacie 500GB HDD. They're great, but only thing i find annoying is the fact it has a switch and you gotta turn it on and off when you wanna use it. I myself have a Element 500GB external, which has a WD drive in it. I reckon mines great, as there's no switch, it automatically turns on and off when it is needed. That's just me though, i tend to be really lazy, and a switch involves effort in my books.

1TB.
It will last, like.. Forever.

For me, 1TB would be best,
Because i download so many films/music video's onto my laptop,
But have to delete them because my laptop only has an 80 HD.

So you are short on cash yet you can waste money on an Alienware PC? And yes, i mean "waste" cos you are paying (and i am not exaggerating in the slightest way) an extra $1,000 just for the brand name.

500 GB are best for money. Internal any way, so i think external would be the same.
