Default Portable HArd drive

So I am looking at getting a small portable hard drive that can easily be transferred to friends and not be bulky. I do not need a lot since all I will be backing up is music and other misc files.

I was looking at the Western Digital Pasport for 90 dollars for 160GB


I know western digital and Seagate are reliable brands but I have not heard of any of the other brands new egg offers. If you have any suggestions or if you think its a good deal lemme know!

TRying to keep under 100 dollars with shipping and trying to be 160GB or more

Thats not a bad deal for the wd passport 160gig. There nice and small, pretty portable. I have some good and bad reviews on them though. However thats about the smallest I have seen size wise for a portable hard drive.
