ok simple choice really:

2TB eSATA drive vs. 3TB USB 3.0

The 2TB drive is slightly cheaper, but the eSATA transfer speeds are obviously much faster.

what would Jeebers do?

yeah - but as the HDD-Master i'll take any advice Smile found an even cheaper 3TB drive on USB 2.0 - have to say i know shite-all about USB versions. I have 2.0 onboard my laptop and i know 3.0 is backwards compatible... always about size and money isn't it??

Always. I guess it's down to what hardware you have. If you don't have a USB3 port then yes it'll work but you won't get any speed bonus. If you have an eSATA port then it does just pump the data though faster.
