What type of interface (connection to the computer) are you looking for?
USB, eSATA, IEEE 1394, a combination of 2, or all 3?
What's your budget?

This can happen with any external drive.
I am asking because I know that with the Iomega Presitige one I have (using USB connection) you can easily loose your backup, if you don't unplug the thing correctly, or if for example there is a power shortage and the computer shuts down while the External Hardive is connected to it and so on.

Well...considering that I can buy a 1TB hard drive for less than $100...
and I can buy a USB 2.0 powered enclosure for less than $50...
I would not even be considering it. I don't buy parts so that profit margins can exceed the norm.
But it's your money and you spend it as you wish.
If you think that putting a hard drive in an enclosure is too whatever, you may want to take a look at comparable external hard drives available at http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory.as...nal-Hard-Drives

As Louis said, no one can really pick one for you.
That's a personal choice.
Any drive from a reputable manufacturer, is as good as any other.
It just depends on what you like, and need.
