Hi, can anyone point me in the right direction of an external hard drive please, size doesn't really matter, 120gb would be more than enough as I will only be using it to back up my iPod, and perhaps store a few other movies.

I saw a seagate 160gb one for £80 in a store today but as I say, I'm not too sure on the quality.

Thanks in advance :thumbsup:

Seagate is a good name. I own a Fantom, 80 gig I use for quick backups when I reformatt or do something I'm not sure of.
Check newegg.com, they have a lot of external drives and customers give reviews which help out.

Seagate is also the only hard drives that have a five year warranty (in the US anyway), and they are excellent in their warranty service.
