    Portable USB hard drive

    Simple one guys

    Can someone recommend a portable USB hard drive? I know many of you buy these far more regularly than I would so should be good for ideas. All I need is 1TB, only needs to be USB2 as I'm not dealing with any 3.0 hardware. No software needs to be bundled with it and I can encrypt with TruCrypt, so no need to spend any extra in that department.

    So really its a reliability thing I guess, obviously I dont want anything that you guys out there have had major faults with.

    Cheers in advance

    I find you can't go wrong with a Samsung hard drive, so I suggest this little bad boy:

    Samsung S2 1TB Portable Hard Drive - USB 2.0 - Retail.. | Ebuyer.com

    USB2, 1TB and comes with some preloaded encryption software (which can be wiped and replaced with TruCrypt which is quality)
