    Go for either a Western Digital or a Seagate. They are the best brands in terms of hard drives and i would definitely recommend a 2.5" drive (Laptop drive) as there it runs off the wiis power instead of needing an extra plug. I have a WD Elements and it works flawlessly 400 GB one WBFS partition and one NTFS partition never needed anything more.

    I've been using a Buffalo Turbo drive 500gb model for the past 3 months or so.
    Works really good, and I got it for $69 on sale.
