    My portable HDD has recently died and im in the market for a new one.

    Preferably:

    1TB or thereabouts
    Needs to work on Mac, PC and Linux
    Reliable, seeing as I really hate having to replace things within a year
    Time Machine Compatibility would be nice, but not essential
    Im UK based so no US sites

    Any Suggestions?
