Most reliable external Hard drive?

Hi,

Looking for a solid & reliable 2TB external Hard drive

Ideally plug & play with no need for power supply. Simple...

Trawling Forums & Amazon etc you end up with 50% reviews saying 'Rubbish - avoid - worst product in the world!' & 50% saying it's the best which leaves you none the wiser!

Are there NO products which are consistently good?

Budget: £90 would be good - maybe go to £115 if worth the extra

Cheers!

Any suggestions at all?

Still finding products which look good but if you scroll there's the usual barrage of low scores & avoid...

If you've got stuff you can't afford to lose then you need to back it up, infallible storage media doesn't exist.

If you just want something decent then any of the big brands will do. Any model will have a percent or two failure rate (it is cutting edge technology with data that's getting smaller all the time) which people don't seem to realise and end up branding any failure 'bad engineering'.

I'll agree with that.

But IMO Seagate have one of the best records for reliability, They normally give a good/long warranty
