AC Powered 3.5" HDD - worth the hassle?

    I see various deals on these external hard drives, at first I wanted the portable 2.5" HDD's but decided it wasnt worth the overblown price. So I wanted your opinions on having something that requires mains power, is it worth the hassle?


    Not worth the hassle if you want to keep moving it. If you just want to leave it plugged in most of the time it's fine.

    It really depends what you want it for - I carry around a 2.5 inch external USB drive in a backpack pocket, it's small and convenient to use anywhere. I have a 3.5 inch drive at home but it's pretty much static in that I only use it for backups when at home.
