As I've replaced my internal 750gb 5400rm HDD with a 120gb SSD (Corsair Force GT), I'll now be needing a fast enough external HDD for movies/games playback and storage. Have shortlisted these two (one being 2.5", while the other one being a 3.5" drive):

WD My Book Essential 3.5 Inch 1 TB External Hard Disk | External Hard Drive | Flipkart.com

So just wanted to confirm that which one of these would be more reliable for constant playback...

As far I know, You can have just casing also, so you could have used your old 750GB HDD inside a casing and turn it into a portable HDD :)

Will it require external supply? And, can you link me any sites that are selling it?

FYI: That 750gb HHD is 2.5" 5400rpm

true buy a casing for 2.5 HDD supporting USB 3.0 from local market rather than ebay, these products do not have definite lifetime. so buy it from local market
until and unless u r buying any coolermaster case for HDD enclosure.

Transcend also makes USB powered SATA enclosures for 2.5" drives. I bought one for 700 bucks around 2 yrs ago, and has served me well since then.
