Deals on External USB 2.0 HDDs or Enclosures?

Anyone know of such deals? (anything bigger then 160gig pref 300)

I got a 200 gig IDE drive flying around that I could put into an enclosure but also need some external drives. Am messing around with a lot of digital video right now as well as trying to do some off-site backups.

After I lost the mini-dv tape of the birth of my daughter (am still in the dog house over that one) I am going to backup all pics and video from her first five years of her life onto a drive and store it at my folks house.

Anyhow, looking to purchase 3 drives or so overall.

Thanks for any and all help.

I bought a couple of these ADS drives ($25) and they work flawlessly with my 160GB and 250GB 3.5" drives. I actually purchased them through Amazon and got free shipping (you might check there also).

I would strongly advise against Lacie drives. The one that I own loses bits all the time. The data on the disk literally decays. It cost many lots of headaches and some irreplaceable lost data. I got a 200 GB Maxtor cheap on sale at Best Buy a few months ago, and itís much more reliable. Point is: go for quality over price when it comes to HDDs.
