    I recommend a 1TB (or greater) external eSATA drive with energy saving features: an example is this Fantom at TigerDirect which also supports USB 2.0. Use SATA if you computer supports it; it's a much faster interface and less likely to cause device conflicts or slow downs than the USB interface. (If you go for the Fantom, note that it doesn't come with a eSATA cable: you'll need to buy this separately.)
