    I know my Dad has had the western digital passport for a while and never ran across any problems with it. I may end up picking one up eventually.

    I'd go for the WD. Personally I'm looking for a good/cheap NAS external drive.

    MacBook(W) 2Gb, 2Ghz & Bluetooth Mighty Mouse, Now my Apple glows colours, Red Apple and Green Leaf.
    I cheated on this issue just recently.
    I upgraded my internal drive(80Gb) to a 160Gb 7200.2 SATA-300 drive
    I then purchased a cheapo SATA-USB enclosure from eBay for a tenner and a couple of quid postage(bargin)
    I then slapped in the new drive in the enclosure and ran superduper to copy everything.
    I then swapped the drives around and formatted the 80Gb for general storage. Best of both worlds now. Large internal and a smaller drive for all my personal data.
    Cost me a total of 140 odd quid.
