Hi folks, I'm getting a new laptop and it's equipped with a USB 3.0 port. My older 250GB HDD just happened to be nearly filled up so I'm thinking of getting another external HDD around 1-2TB that supports USB 3.0, since some people I know said USB 3.0 is faster than firewire and comparable to eSATA. Anyone here happens to own one of those? I'm going down to Funan this weekend to compare prices but I just thought it would be useful if someone here can say how much they got theirs for
