Hi everyone,

in anticipation of making the big switch (to a MBP), I'm looking into external hard drives. We all know the various uses and I'm especially excited about Time Machine. Anyway, I'm looking for as elegant a solution as possible. I found this, and am curious if there are any other options out there that combine the external HD enclosure w/ a USB hub. If there aren't (or if I'm barking up the wrong tree on a bad product), what do you guys do when you run out of usb ports?

Thanks,

B

Looks like a nice case - considered it when I got mine.

Don't know, and would see if you can find some reviews on the consequences of trying to use multiple ports simultaneously. Like maybe editing a video thru FW and using a USB keyboard & mouse connected to the unit. How much would it affect data transfer to the drive?

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
