Haven't a clue about them, but need one desperately

What should I look out for and what. I have to store my music/films on
that's all. I do have a large collection though

If you don't have a clue, how do you know you need one?

Common sense would dictate you buy a good quality make (WD, Seagate, etc.)
and make sure it's large enough for your needs. Other than that there's not
much difference between them.
Are you sure you need an external one?

USB 2 , external PSU , ideally must have a fan in the case, the biggest
capacity you can afford (may be 300-500Gb)
