Can anyone recommend a good 1TB external hard drive?

Preferably something that is portable rather than designed for a desktop.

Thanks

Not helping much, but I'm looking too.
The Seagate looks good @ around £50.

No, because I wouldn't buy anything under 2 Tb.

My dream is for a NAS that I can Raid and expand as required but I can't afford that right now.
