Sometimes they have what they call network storage, which attaches VIA a Cat 5 cable to your router, but they are more expensive than what your looking at, that would be the only advantage a one piece unit may have.

I have a 500gig WD mybook and love it. Right now i've got like 375 gig worth of music, tv and movies on it. I love these things and I'll proabably get a 1TB next.

My brother has a 100 gig protable external hard drive that he uses for his lap top. I had it first for my computer so I can take it places with me but I ran out of space quickly.

If you are going to be transferring large amounts of data, look into a firewire drive.

I have several USB and firewire enclosures and the Firewire runs rings around the USB.

The firewire enclosures will usually do USB also. Costs more than a strictly USB but well worth it for big transfers.

I will admit to having more failures from seagate drives. However, they do have the better warranty. FYI: Now that seagate has bought out maxtor the maxtor brand name now carries seagates 5 year warranty. I just don't know if they fixed the quality issues w/ maxtors or not.
