Lacie Porsche USB 2.0 drives are quite good-- I've got one of these http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/62833

I use several of these: Freecom 250GB 7200rpm USB2.0 Drive

Never had a problem with any of them.

Look good, Peter, slightly lighter and faster seek time than the Lacie-- they'd probably both be good buys I reckon

Not from Watford Electronics/Savastore, I hope. I wouldn't touch this company with a barge pole. Even the local trading standards authority gave up trying to help me out.

Can't say I have had any problems with WE and I do use then regularly. Then again I state exactly what I want with an item code and know what I am getting.

Have you ever tried returning faulty goods, and getting a refund from WE? It's like getting blood out of a stone.

Why does YouTube await me?
