Default External Hard Drive Recommendations

Hey Gang! I, too, have recently suffered a hdd crash. I still get the willies when I hear something that sounds like that distinctive clicking noise.

Anyway, after about 8 hrs on the phone to India, spread over 2 days, I got the OS reinstalled and things seemed to be good. I'd decided to get Norton Ghost to back up an image of my HD to DVD. But Ghost did something to the OS and I had to reinstall, yet again.

I've decided for someone as non-tech as I am that an external hdd is the way to go - but when I went looking at units I was overwhelmed. So I thought to come to this sage group and seek some counsel. What brand of hdd have people had good experiences with: no crashing, easy install, kind of a no-brainer experience. I'm looking for around a 120gb unit, USB (not sure if 1 or 2). Suggestions?
