I worked in the disk drive industry for 18 years, designing, testing, and fabricating magnetic recording materials for disk drives. They are an amazing technology, but there are SO many tight tolerances and high speeds involved. So backup to a duplicate or DVD or something else is ALWAYS, ALWAYS a good idea!
P.S. The warranties vary a LOT on the drives I considered this weekend. At least get a decent warranty, so you can get a replacement if it fails prematurely.

I buy internal HDs because generally they're cheaper then ones marketed as EHDs and sometimes they come with better warranties. Both of mine came with 5 year warranties.
2 years ago I paid about $100 for the 320. I paid about $120 for the 1TB mid 2008.
