^^I disable head parking on all of my WD green drives in unRAID. It's pretty easy to do and I just felt that it was not worth the risk to find out if there are any problems later in life caused by a high amount of head parking cycle.

Does USB3 sustains higher transfer?
Respect for all and especially for poofy.

I think so, even though I haven't gotten to test it myself (no USB3 external). I know Firewire 400 can do it, so I figure USB3 can.

Great thread, you guys are a really great community.
I'm trying to set up an HTPC for my living room, it has to be girlfriend-friendly. I was hoping to do a pre-built computer because I'm honestly too lazy to build one myself (not that I couldn't). It looks like I'd be a group 2 user, and someone mentioned the Zotac ND01 (http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0332179).
I was just wondering if the support for Wifi is there, and how hooking up an external hard drive would perform. I saw the ND01 only has USB2.0, but I have a 3.0 external hard drive, so are there any prebuilt systems out there that support this? Or is 2.0 fast enough?
