Default Recomendations for external hard drive

I would appreciate some recommendations and pros and cons in regard to which external hard drive to buy for backing up financial data, documents, pictures, and videos from my computer.

Which brand and model of external hard drives do you all recommend and which do you not like? How much memory should it have?

Thanks in advance to all who answer.

I would suggest something from Western Digital. They make quality drives and have excellent support services.

With regards to capacity, look for maybe 500GB and up. It really depends on how much you want to spend. Here are a couple of examples:

Western Digital Elements 500GB USB 2.0 Midnight Black Portable External Hard Drive

Western Digital Elements 1TB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive
