Hi computernewbie1
Best advice I can suggest is to read the reviews of people who have purchased the item http://www.amazon.co...howViewpoints=1

Is This Any Good For Downloading Music , Movies And Files ?

See the reviews at the above link.

Is This A Good Brand?

Again see the reviews at the above link, apparently it has a good quality hard drive (WD) Western Digital.

What Does External USB Hard Drive Even Mean?

All this means is that it is an external HDD that plugs into one of your external USB ports (some PCs have internal USB ports).
