    Guys,

    I need help. I've been looking around for ages and can't decide what to go for.

    I'm looking for a robust hard drive with USB 3, 1-2TB capacity, has to be powered by USB connection. DOn't want another plug taking up space.

    will be mostly used for backing up photos.

    Up to about £100 or less.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Tom.

    Thats strange, I keep reading that Seagate are unreliable (ticking noises etc)although I had a 350 gB seagate that was perfectly OK. :)
    I guess everyone has their favourites ;)
