    Hi All.

    Yea, I know the reaction to this, what speed do you Actually need etc. etc.

    Well, in my opinion you cannot get a fast enough device, so my question is what would you recommend buying for an external HD for a MBP right now.....?

    I was considering a Western Digital MyBook but in NAS setup (vs USB) and hooked direct to the router.

    well definitely get one that only needs USB power.

    SSD preferably. I had a regular notebook computer HDD in an enclosure and it didn't last long.
