Default External Hard Disk Drives

Could anyone recommend a good external hdd?

I am looking for at least 120GB and it must support hot swapping.

Thanks in advance for the help.

i would buy an internal seagate 160GB hard disk for $111 and buy this exact USB 2.0 enclosure: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...145-314&depa=0

you can install any IDE device into it like cd-rom, hard disk, ect. you install your hard disk in the box and plug it into your computer using USB 2.0 or 1.1.

Thanks ek, but I can't find a dealer with that BYTECC enclosure in the UK, will either have to wait until I get my new address next week or make a bunch of backup disks.
