External hard drive

I am looking for an external hard drive to back up my present laptop and desktop computers. I don't want something that is going to be obsolete quickly. I am thinking a 1 or 2 TB hard drive. I will be purchasing probably a new all in one for my main computer, I saw a 23" Samsung w/ Windows 8 that I really like, and a new less expensive desktop for my home office. I may look into another laptop in a year or so. What brands should I look for? I am looking at a Western Digital 2TB My Book Essential right now. This is just under $100 at this time. What features do I need to be concerned about? I don't have a ton of data to store but that could change. I just want to get the best unit for my money.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
