    I'm looking into purchasing an external hard drive to host iTunes library and double as a backup for my iMac hard drive. Any suggestions as to which hard drives out there would be a good fit to store my entire iTunes library and fast enough to stream to my Apple TV?

    If you have a new mac with 3.0

    Get a drive that has that

    You can't go wrong with western digital or seagate

    I went cheap and got a toshiba drive

    3TB 3.0 for $119

    I also bought this one
    1TB 3.0 $65

    Both working fine

    I stream to Apple TV , I have my movies on the 3TB drive

    Edit: I also have an old 2TB wd drive that I use for backup with time machine

    I'd recommend the CalDigit AV Drive if you have USB 3.0, or FW. It looks great, and it's fast.


    It's built to last, and has an aluminum design that fits in nice with the Mac aesthetic.
