Question 1TB+ External Hard Drive Reliability?

i have a 250gb wd external hard drive which i have used for 5 years and is finally full. i have had no issues with the drive whatso ever and still runs like a champ.

with these new 1tb+ external hard drives it really seems to be hit or miss and more size = more chances of something failing. im leaning towards wd again and their element 1.5tb hard drive for $70. only thing i don't like about it is there is no activity light.

i looked at fantom but really, the company aint that big and the drive doesn't seem to be reliable.

any recomendations/thoughts?
