I got the 500gb western digital ibook. They run really quietly and never get hot. I also have a cheap 200gb external harddrive which I think has a maxtor in it. That gets a bit hot, but nothing to worry about.

I bought a 2.5inch external box from DX one year ago. Damn cheap, but totally crap. Bad plastic and really basic quality. The mini USB plug was broken 2 monthes after reception, soldering part was'nt strong enough. One good point, the simili-leather pouch included with the external box is now used with my rocking 2nd good old fellow Icy Box.

hey, i should probably looking into getting one too...

i have a "laser" branded case holding a 300gb drive (don't know the brand) i bought ages ago. it's kinda dodgy though, gets quite hot if it's on too long.

and what about power supplies. my power supply gets hot too....
