Ref TomJerry's reccomendations
Thats how I did mine -200 Gb for 85 ish

It is straightforad the bits simply plug together

It's all a matter of Plug'n'Pray as they say

only two plugs (they are very different and cannot get wrong) and a few screws (standard screws)

1st class product easy to use and install, runs virtually silently and cool. I have two, one touch back up in the evening, and very quick.

Aldi has a Samsung 160 Gb external HDD for £80 (I believe). I understand it has USB2 and Firewire. Worth a look.
