For the past couple of days I have been reading about external drives and am looking for some recommends (possibly Firewire since they can daisied?) before making a final decision, in case I overlooked something. Here are the specs I am aiming for: Use for HTPC, so must be able to withstand 24/7 power on state & high usage USB 2.0 & eSATA (if I understand correctly eSATA is hot pluggable, but have also read about the drives having to be booted up before the computer?*) 1TB or more Stackable (preferred) Hot pluggable (the ability to disconnect the drive without having to power down) These are the ones that I am looking at: Aluratek 1TB or Aluratek 2TB (reports of performance decrease after long usage due to heat) Lacie 1TB (There is a 2TB but not on newegg) Calvary 1TB & Cavalry 2TB *Found this in a review on Newegg about Cavalry CAXM 1TB Any idea what he is talking about? Any recommendations are welcomed. Thanks.
