Basically I have been buying a lot of TV shows recently to stream to our Apple TV, but they seem to be taking up a lot of space! Does anyone know the cheapest external HDD, preferably north of 100GB?
Doesn't have to be the fastest, and any connection should be fine (USB 2, FW800, Thunderbolt -- but I doubt any of those will be cheap!)

I've looked at Amazon but most are in the £50 range, I was thinking more £20-30? Would it be beneficial to wait, since aren't the supplies still constricted because of the flooding in Asia where they're made?

Any help much appreciated :)

Where am I???
I love when the words "best" and "cheap" are used in the same sentence. ;)

In all seriousness, you easily should be able to find a 250GB Western Digital or Iomega drive in your price range.

Hehe I'll have a look thanks.
I'll rephrase it to 'value for money'. Obviously in an ideal world the bet things would be cheap!
