    I need a 500GB External Hard drive with a power button on the front. I have Googled this but could get no conclusive results. I was wondering if the Maxtor One Touch III or the WD My Book have this feature. I don't want to spend more than $160.00. Your help is appreciated. Thanks.

    I have two Seagate External Hard drives that are hot swappable and with a power button on the front. Unfortunately they are not made any more. I want to be able to shut it off because of the extra security( downloading Torrents, Etc.). Thanks. smile.gif
