    Hello i am about to purchase a new HDD and im not to sure if i should choose a 3.5 Powered Desktop HDD vs a 2.5 Laptop HDD
    Will the wii be able to power the 2.5 HDD and will it run as well as the 3.5 anyone have any past experience with the 2 differences? many thanks

    I have a Seagate FreeAgent Go - 500GB ... (NOT "Desk" ...)

    It works like a DREAM ! It's small, compact as heck, and requires NO external power. Just plug the single USB cable and away you go.

    Comes in Black, Silver, Blue and Red ! [​IMG]

    It's 2.5" btw

    I have NEVER had a freeze (once I set the power to "never") ... works flawlessly on all games.

    Well this clears up my decision thanks alot for all the input everyone

    And at my local store there are housings and the drives that come seperately as well as the HD already in the housing which would be better the ones that i put together myself are cheaper however i suppose there is no warranty or anything which is easier in your opinion?
