I am looking to buy an external hard drive with a capacity of around 111GB when formatted. Can anyone advise me on any preferred model which is reliable and has quick access. I would like it to run at 7200rpm.

Thanks in advance

A good option is to buy the parts and make it yourself - you can get a good 120gb disk for about £60 and a USB2 / firewire caddy for about £15.

Thanks for the reply.

Unfortunately I am not the techy type so would much prefer to buy.

I use Maxtor one touch External HDD. It's excellent and pretty fast. Mine is a 250gb drive costing about £240.

Still, if you want to buy, have a look at the Lacie range - good quality.
