Thread: External Hard Drive

  1. #1

    Default External Hard Drive

    Hi all. At uni it's been suggested that we get a external hard drive so that we can save our work. The one thing they suggested was getting one with a firewire connection. 2 questions:

    1. Is there a major difference between USB 2.0 connectivity and Firewire connectivity?

    2.Where can I get an external hard drive from with firewire?

    Most usb drives work fine but fire wire will be better - much higher transfer rate and lower overheads - I have both and b marked them so I am sure.

    Sometimes cheaper to buy a f wire box (overclockers) and put the drive in yourself.
