External harddrive backup suggestion!

Considering the newest version of iTunes will not allow you to backup the apps, music, digital movie and other purchases on DVD's, I was wondering what external HD 500gb people would recommend. The computer I'm using to run iTunes is newer Sony Vio i5 w/ a 500gb HD.

I'm just fearful of losing all my purchases.

I use Western Digital, the MyBook versions at home and their Passports for when I'm out and about.

I use a wd as well. I got a 1 terabit at best buy on sale and I love it. If you want something more powerful and you're willing to spend the money I'd look into lacie. Their rugged portable hard drives are the best (IMO). I've never had any problems with them. I've only had minor problems with wd but id still recommend one.
I've been using a 500gb iomega drive for the last 12months....no issues whatsoever....
