I have several drives I use with my Qu. Some are old laptop drives I put in USB cases, but I have one excellent suggestion: USB is not always the fastest transfer method. I h=bought a Seagate 250G drive and put it in a, OWC external case that has rirewire 800 as well as USB2. Using FW 800 is much faster transferring the tracks to my Mac Pro! A 5400 RPM drive is fine, but the bottleneck for me is the USB connection. Maybe USB3 would be better, but my cases are mostly USB 2.

Just a user tip!
