Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB. £43.90 at ebuyer. 2TB combined with your current disc should be good enough. Of course, I don't know you needs, so you may need more, but 2TB is alot of space. And don't buy a 2TB hard drive, they are slower and usually equal if not more expensive than 2 1TB drives.

As others have mentioned, the Samsung SpinPoint F3 is simply the best hard drive out at the moment.

The samsung 2TB drives go for just under £70. If its storage of music/videos/pictures then speed isn't an issue, not that you'll notice much of a difference anyway.

What do you mean 'better' RPM?

The Green drives run @ 5400RPM, slower than the Blacks or the F3's. Despite the F3 being a 7200RPM drive, it still manages to stay cool under operation, and is quicker than the Black

Just get two F3's. One smaller 500Gb for OS, and a 1Tb for storage.
