    Hi all

    I'm looking at buying a TC 500MB and this will replace my linksys 54wrtg.

    The linksys has been running for years and uses very small amount of power.

    With the TC its got a HD inside and the box is saying it uses 31watts of power.

    Does the HD spin down when not in use? Is the power output that hight ( 31 watts )

    Many Thanks

    I can say that 'yes' the hard drive does spin down when not in use.

    Not sure about the actual power draw though.
