Hello Doods, I am trying to purchase an external hard drive that has a power on/off button on it. All the externals I look at (Mybook, Seagate, Hitachi, Maxtor) all seem to just turn on with your computer. I currently own an older 160gb Seagate that I can turn off whenever which I love because I usually only use my external for 10 minutes a day tops. So I was wondering if anyone could suggest an external that they know has a power button. Thanks, BTW I am looking for about 500gb of space if that matters.

I have a Fantom I bought from newegg that has a on/off button. I use it for backing up files. :thumbsup:
