I absolutely love the idea of integrating an external HD with a wireless router. The new TC caught my eye (1TB model), but so did the price... After reading a few threads, it seems many people are creating their own makeshift TC. That is, buying the AEBS and manually connecting an external HD via USB. While I think that's a great idea, I'm a little worried about how everything would work/look. For instance, what kind of enclosure would be best for this setup? Does the external HD require it's own power source? Is there any loss of functionality with this setup as opposed to the TC? Also, it would help if someone could post a picture of their AEBS/HD setup. I'll probably be living in a cramped area when I return to school, so having a clean workspace with minimal wires is definitely an asset. That said, I don't want to pay an extra $200 for pure aesthetics. Thanks for your input!
