Need recommendations for portable hard drives. The reviews on newegg and amazon are too rah rah or doomsday.

I would like to get a 250GB portable hard drive to dump my RAW and PSD files and my music files into so as to free up space on my main computer hard drive. I've been looking at the LaCie portables. Most of the reviews on newegg and amazon are either 'this is fantastic' or 'this thing is crap it died in two days'. I have no way to judge criteria other than what I read in those reviews. Does anyone have any experience with the LaCie hard drives or other brands that may be more reliable/better deals? I need something that is easy to set up and will be reliable over the long term. It is just a dumping ground - back up.
