    It takes all sorts, and some on this forum are really serious about their backups. :)

    For more modest ambitions, a USB HDD from a major maker will do fine. I (now) have 3 Toshibas and a WD My Passport. All have been reliable (well, until I dropped one of the Toshibas while it was running, and apart from some bad blocks that chkdsk found and marked that's still running too).

    ill prob spend $50 on amazon and get a WD HDD
    That will probably do nicely. For added security, consider getting two, then either copy your images to the second one as a backup, or alternate which disk you make the images on.

    I just use the basic Seagate Expansion portable drives (USB 3.0) and they have been fine.
