There are several choices,
LaCie, Maxtor and Western Digital is the most common ones.
I have heard several complains about the Maxtor's quality lately.

You can also build your own, with a firewire/usb2 enclusure and a standard internal HD.

I have ordered a Lacie D2 a week ago, they have the best overall reputation.
