    USB Or Power Adapter HDD?

    Which one is better USB powered or USB and power adapter powered? Just wondering because I am going to get a external HDD tomorrow and play my backup games

    Some people talk about USB powered ones overloading the USB power of the Wii but that's just heresay. I find it easier to go bus powered as you don't need an additional power socket and it's easier to disconnect/reconnect the drive when you load a new iso or two.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    I've always wondered about the convenience of a usb powered drive... but mine have always been AC powered. No matter what you do, make sure you get a Seagate or a Western Digital with a 5 year warranty. I've already had a drive fail and they'll replaced it no questions asked.
