Choosing an external HDD

Hi Guys,

I need some advice picking an external HDD to back up my data (in preparation for the move to Windows7). Hopefully you can help out :)

I would like something between 500-750Gb and one that has a good, fast transfer rate if possible. I am able to use eSATA and Firewire as well as USB2.0.

My budget is approx £60-70, any thoughts on what I should go for?

Many thanks!

Sean

  2. Thanks r_manic that looks pretty cool, I'd be interested to see any eSATA options as well if you know of any :-)
