Hello
Do all the 2+TV external USB 3.0 hard drives require external power (AC adapter)?
TB
I am thinking that inly the 2.5 inch external drives can be run straight from a USB 3.0 header and ther size is limited to under 1TB.
Adrian P.
Not all but it is actually best to get one with a dedicated power cord, so you can use the actual USB for just transfers rather than power and transfer at the same time
the downside is portable laptop use in the vehicle
Adrian P.
ah I see
Well if you give a moment I can look around see If i can find you a self powered one
ok thanks!
Adrian P.
and budget?
well, cheaper is better for this one.
Hard to beat the 4TB Seagate for 109!!!! Just need AC power which can be provided if need be
