Rain barrels?

Rain barrels?

My mom put the brain bug about getting a rain barrel in my head a few years back, and it's recently eaten its way through to the forefront again. Does anyone have any experience using them? Or downspout redistributors?
Any suggestions on either making one, or which brands are good?
Thanks! This is a great community. :)
