For that drive then I'd agree not Al, |
However USB2 is capable of reading at 480mb/s and firewire at 400mb/s
HOWEVER you can now get external HDD's with an ethernet conection, which is generally more than adequate depending on your adapter.
The best way to get a decent deal on an external HDD is to buy the interface seperatly.You can get USB/Firewire/Ethernet to IDE/SATA fairly cheaply these days (sub £20) and you just plug any hard drive into it and the other end into your pc. I bought an interface last year, and a 80gig hard drive for £30 total on ebay, at a time when an 80gb HDD would have set you back £50 - £60.
I use it to run my mesh scenery for FS9 off and it works fine. I would probably only use a Ethernet connection drive for FS itself but USB2/Firewire is more than adequate for scenery and add ons.
All the best,
