    guys, what setup do you have? what brand of ext HDD do you have? is it recommended to use those ext HDD without power adapter with AEBS? i read some people having problems with ext HDD that goes to sleep? should i get a ext HDD that does not go to sleep? i preferably want 1TB , 750GB or 500Gb what can you suggest?

    Theres been a few posts about this. A search would throw up some good info for you.
    Anyways, I use a Western Digital USB only MyBook. 1TB. It was cheap and has been working just great so far. Backs up 3 Macs plus an external hd that is connected to one of the Macs.
