Ask Engadget: Best external hard drive under $100?

Darren Murph

Ask Engadget is back this week with yet another thoughtful reader-submitted question, and if you'd like your own inquiry to get some face time, just send one in to ask at engadget dawt com. Without further adieu, we'll let Zach take it from here:

"So I need some extra storage because I've been going a little iTunes "crazy" lately and have been downloading gigabytes of albums, podcasts and movies. I'm looking for a reliable hard drive but at the same time, price is a key factor considering not a lot of money is available at the moment. I'm thinking 100GB or more should suffice. I don't want to get roped into buying a crappy hard drive and have it die on me a week after using it. What's the best one out there for around $100 or less? Thanks!"

We'll go out on a limb here and assume he's looking for USB 2.0 (sorry, FireWire 400), so let loose those opinions!
