The interfaces you listed, your average Mac has only 1 or maybe 2 of the list so that helps.
For the Mac I prefer the firewire connection. If anyone enters into a debate over speed of firewire or USB 2.0 just nod and keep moving.
What works is any mass produced unit. What else you need to know is this things are still hard disks and require just as much backup as any hard disk. These are not "storage."
I would like to buy for my MBP an External Desktop Drive.
This will be my first one.
Could you please recommend me some good quality hard drives.
Also could you please tell me when I am choosing what options to look for please?
For example I would like sth between 300-500 GB,
but don't know whats the difference between Firewire,USB 2.0 cable ,eSATA...etc.
thanks for your help
