I'm planning a trip to backpack in Europe this summer after I graduate college. I currently have a 512MB and 2GB card for my D70. We're probably going to be there around 4 weeks. I was thinking that a portable hard drive device such as:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817145165

would be much more economical that purchasing enough flash memory. My biggest concern with a device like this is that there is no positive confirmation that everything copied correctly. I would be devastated if I got home and connected the drive to my computer and could not retrieve my images. Has anyone who has much experience with these types of devices had any issues with reliability? Also, any comments on the device I've linked? I'm not really concerned about the ability to view pictures, just store them. That device will be about $50 from New Egg and Best Buy has a 60GB 2.5" HDD for $80 this week, so $130 for a 60GB portable storage device seems like a great deal. Just wanted to get some opinions before proceed.

Thanks so much!
