This is a good deal, but I hate using external drives that require a separate cable for power. It's another cable to add to the clutter.

Don't look now but these would require an extra adapter on top of that... unless you have extra power cords with enough juice to power these.

USB C should be able to power these but I don't know if they exist yet.

That is where my collection of adapters came in handy. For this one you need adapter that delivers 12V at 3A.

FWIW I’ve had a couple of these and they’ve gone bad pretty quick. Just make sure you have backups just in case. It could be that I got a lemon as well. Not sure.
