Need a external drive for storing movies on

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I plan on plugging it to my ASUS Black Diamond router's usb and running it on my network. What do you guys recommend for a external hard drive ????

Looking at getting a 1TB or 2TB drive.


Thank you. smile.gif

I have a Hitachi simple drive that I removed the case and internalized it.
