Christmas Present 4 Myself

  ukpostcode 18:32 11 Dec 2010

I bought everyones presents & given to charity.
So now it's time to buy something for me!

OK, i'm after possibly an external HDD.
Possibly USB powered so can use with laptop.
But who do go for etc & where to buy from?
Would need at least 500GB as plan to put music on it, but 1TB would be better?

Any advice would be most welcome.
Thanks in advance.

He needs a USB powered drive I think, BUT the WD is a good buy although read user comments if available

Need USB powered external HDD due to often being out in the field & need to run the data straight off the usb port of the Laptop.

Cheers for all the posts.

I think
External hd = needs a separate power source
portable hd = is usb powered.
