Question what's a good external harddrive (1TB or more) for back-up purposes?

Hi,

I need an external hard-drive to make back-ups of my internal drives.
It should be 1TB or more (1,5TB or even 2TB).

What brand/model would be a good and reliable choice?

Thanks,
Lars

Good brands would be Western Digital, Seagate, Samsung and a few offers
