Hi everyone

Just getting my computer audio project going - thanks for all of the advice given on the board so far btw.

Noticed that I have an e-sata port on the computer (data transfer likely to be v fast), as well as USBs (they will be 2 and not 3), I need to buy some external storage so will there be any noticeable advantage in searching out an external drive capable of connecting via e-sata?

The computer will be dedicated to computer audio and will have no other purpose.

Your advice and thoughts would be most appreciated.

For example found this - http://www.ebuyer.com/271704-freecom-2tb-quattro-3-0-hard-drive-f56067

and this - http://www.ebuyer.com/384253-seagate-2tb-expansion-desktop-drive-stbv2000200

Big price difference but any benefits?

Cheers and thanks as always

For audio, where the data rates are relatively low, USB 2 is likely to be more than adequate.
