Your best bet to get one for as cheap as possible is to buy an internal hard drive and then just buy a caddy for it, Will work out alot cheaper, still your going to have to be pretty lucky to get a 1tb for £50 or under.
If your willing to spend a bit more. I got mine from Comet in the UK, its a 1.5tb and cost me £79.99, was a lucky one to be honest and I got it just before Christmas

It's exactly the same as any external HDD. It's got the case, a lil SATA/USB adapter, and any extras required (e.g. AC port for 3.5" drives). The difference is, the case is usually bigger and designed to be opened for when you want to put in/take out the HDD.

And it doesn't always work out cheaper. Average is £5-10 for an enclosure, then you have to find the internal HDD to go inside.
