I'm putting together a blog post that focuses on hard drives and easy ways to make purchases, and as part of that, I was wondering if anyone would be willing to take a picture of his/her Mac with preferably both a 3.5-inch external HDD and a 2.5-inch external HDD connected to it. The connection method doesn't matter, as long as I can see both hard drives close to each other. If you give your name or an alias, as well as a blog/website link (optional), I will give you due credit for the image. Much thanks in advance.

Do they have to be 2? and do they have to be directly connected to the Mac? Cause i have 4 external 3.5" and they go through a usb hub and 2 2.5"...

Actually, if that's the case, can you get them in one shot together? That's more important - the picture should be able to show the clear size difference.

I was working with this for something of my own, don't know if it'll be useful for you or not, but feel free.

Can you watch Blu-ray on your Mac though?
Not officially, but MakeMKV has a feature which lets you play them in VLC, not sure on the limitations of that though. Personally I'd just buy a large HDD and use MakeMKV to dump the blurays as single MKV files.

Hmm Okay. So Mac's can't play Blu-Ray officially?

Heres a couple I took today..
Let me know if they are fine, no credit is needed if they are used (though I would like a link to the post, maybe)
Also had a 3.5" and 2.5" laying around without a case, took a pic of those.
Edit: uploading is going crazy... I'll try again
