What external hard disks, portable or deskbound, is everyone using on their new SR MBPs?

I would be using the external primarily for running Parallels images, so I assume that using the FW800 port would give me the best performance.

I'm using one of THESE. It works very well, and even though it's kind of pokey-slow (USB 2.0 only, would have preferred FW400/800) I got it for $75 out-the-door so I can't complain too loudly. :rolleyes:

2 WD MyBook Pros! I bought a 250gb a few months back and another 500gb just recently. I just can't get enough of their cool silver book design. Just makes you wanna buy more and more so you can build a "hdd library" on your book shelf.

I've got an Iomega 640Gb Ultramax with Firewire 800 at home, and am considering my options for portable use at the moment. Have to say the 250Gb WD Passport is looking good at £95 from Amazon UK.
