My wd tv live is going to arrive soon.
I am thinking about buying an external usb hard drive to go with it. I’m looking at the Samsung Story 1.5 TB (5400 rpm) or the Western digital Mybook 1.5TB (7200 rpm). The Samsung is cheaper,very quite, runs cool and is supposed to be rock solid. I understand the speed difference is not much due the way that USB2 is implemented on both drive chipsets.
I assume that it’s easy to use either of these with the WD TV Live to make a cheap NAS accessible from other PCs in the workgroup ?
The main thing that would make me decide is if the WD MyBook / WD live TV combination supports drive encryption of the files, just in case someone steals the entire setup
Is anything like this supported ?
Thanks for any help.
