I am considering buying a 300Gb usb hard drive to replace the ide hard drives and just wondered if there was any disadvantes about doing this.
Are they reliable?
Many thanks.

USB is slow read write, compared with IDE in the computer

You cannot REPLACE the IDE with USB windows will not boot from and external drive (without a great deal of tricky work).
