    What will you be using it for? There's quite a difference between 500 gb and a terabyte. Do you actuallty need the extra 500 gb or no?

    I've seen 500GB USB2 drives by LaCie for about 115 (170) plus VAT.
    If you want Firewire 800 that pushes the price up by over 50%.

    1TB drives are about 350 (510), so it really is important to decide if you need the capacity, but those drives have the Firewire 800 option.

    Note - these are desktop drives so they are not intended to be carried around as portable storage.

    You could get an external enclosure and put a drive into it. Seagate drives are quiet.

    If you don't know if you need 500 GB or or 1 TB then you could get one 500 GB drive for now and add another one later.

    I was actually thinking about this one: http://www.misco.co.uk/productinform...affiliate=2012 but I've no personal experience of either.

    I doubt there's much to choose between them in terms of performance, so I'd personally go for the cheapest.

    Is that the same as a caddy case? I have one where i can put internal HD in. So the official name is external exclosure?

    I don't know about "official name" but that's what they are called at Newegg.
