I cannot speak specifically about any of those Ext HDs because i don't own any of them..
Make sure the external drive is 7200rpm.... and not 5400rpm or a 'green' drive with something called "varipower' or a similar name...

All of those drives seem to be 5400rpm spinners. Try a Seagate Blackarmor PS 110 or something like that. It boast three times the speed of it's GoFlex USB2 5400rpm lil brother and still runs off the laptop power.
