Newegg has this:
Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV4000100
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822178354

Tempted to get it and then not worry about those external ones like I have now. I know it uses a power supply, but why not get the most I can for a reasonable price?

That is a great deal. If it's replacing a few externals that is a lot cleaner. Not having a power supply means you have less to move if you have to move the drive around though. If you don't have a need to move it between computers the aesthetics of your computer set up our purely up to you. smile

Well, I stuck with the 2TB. That was a better deal for me.

1:11 from pushing button to log in with old hard drive.

25 seconds with new hard drive.

Oh yeah, and apparently the apple store here had left off the ram cover door the last time they had it.
