    Anyone have any preference?

    I have a huge library of GC and Wii games, and my 500GB HD is getting retired for something in the 1TB range.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    I've heard great things about powered enclosures. You free up a usb slot because you use mains power and you're free to upgrade any hard drive you like - maybe even with an SSD.

    You can also plug the power plug of a Y cable into a USB wall power supply as long as it's 5V/500mA. Frees up a port. :P

    I see them all the time at thrift stores for like $1.00.

    That's what I do for my hard drive since my Wii U can't power my hard drive.
