Recommendations for external hard drives with separate power Tags: Hard Drives Power External Hard Drive Storage Last response: October 7, 2010 4:13 PM in Storage Share sftpfilecontrol October 7, 2010 3:29:25 PM Call me old fashioned, but I prefer USB drives with their own power adapters. I may be wrong, but they seem to run better and be more stable. So ... can anyone recommend a 500GB+ USB2 or USB3 external drive that has its own power adapter? I prefer a model manufactured by a major brand (Seagate, WD, etc.) I did some online searching, but was unable to locate anything. thanks!
