Default External Hard Drive

Can anyone reccomend a good portable HD? I study multimedia design at Uni so need to be able to transport large video files to and from home I was looking at ebuyer.co.uk (needs to be UK) but there is so much to chose from, as far as I know, Seagate and WD are good names, but I am not sure, I need at least 40GB but anything for around £60/£70 is what I'm after, my mate says there are good ones on there......80GB for about £60. Any help would be greatly appriciated, thanks

EDIT: Oh yeah, and also, in comparison to this:


I like that one because the slimmer, the better.....I don't want to have to carry something bulky, and I want a really easy one that I can just plug straight in to a PC or Mac without having to install anything if thats possible

Thanks for your fb

I know, that one is only 5400 rpm, but a WD for that online price seemed a good deal.

From my limited knowledge of HD's, Seagate and WD seem to be the brands to go for, can anyone suggest a better option from ebuyer than that WD from PC world?
