I've recently started using TVersity to stream my music, movies, and TV shows to my PS3 and it's working very well. Unfortunately my Macbook Pro's HDD is pretty much full at this point. I don't really want to go through the trouble of installing a bigger HDD in my laptop so I've decided I'm just going to buy a 1TB external HDD and dump all my media files there.


Now I'd love to get something with a Firewire 800 port or even a 400 port but I can't find a brand I trust that has one that isn't out of my budget (I'm not looking to drop more than $120). So I guess my question is will USB 2.0 be sufficient for streaming/transcoding video files? I'd imagine for SD stuff I shouldn't have to much of a problem but a large part of my concern stems from 720p stuff that isn't very heavily compressed.

Unfortunately there is a 4 GB limit as the PS3 does not support NTFS.

Doesn't matter. I'm formatting it in HFS+, so my OSX partition will be able to access the files, and using MacDrive to read the files then streaming it through TVersity to my PS3.
