    I am looking to purchase an external HDD, the storage isn't so important, 40-80GB is plenty. The most important factors are portability and reliability.

    Any suggestions or experiences would be greatly appreciated.

    I am looking at the Freecom FHD-2 Pro and the Iomega Silver Series (33235) (33229) 60 GB Hard Drive at the moment. priced at £90 each respectively.

    Cheers,

    Rich.

    I've got one of the larger lacies (P3 desktop model), very nicely built. I'll certainly buy from them again.

    Most of the drives available on the Lacie site have decent photos. The DataBank one is the most portable I think and there are a couple of pictures there (one of which shows it next to a keyring). The other thing with this is that it takes it's power from the USB port rather than having to have an external power supply. It's not the cheapest, but it looks good.
