Re: Qube2 question: Largest drive size supported ?

Hello Mark,

I think you should also look at power consumption of your drive
as the power supply of the Qube is 33watt. I can imagion that
the new quiet drive sometimes use a bit more power than in the
old days. I myself use a 160Gb samsung and have a USB pci card
