    Anybody looking for an external HD?

    I saw this one on Digg, a damn good deal.

    - lots of capacity there at a nice price, but i prefer ext. USB bus-powered drives (i.e., no AC adapter required)...

    - i'm still waiting for 32GB SDHC...

    Nice drive regardless... just 3 weeks ago, I ended up picking up a drive with half that capacity for the same price.

    One thing I wish would be standardized... some type of USB or IEEE1394-like interface that can provide real power (in the amp range.) Powered USB (www.poweredusb.org) would be perfect, if it gets off the ground.

    A 6-pin Firewire connection will provide the power needed to run an external drive. Just make sure you buy an external drive that uses a 6-pin firewire connection:
