Default SATA External Drive

Thinking about buying an external hard drive for data storage. My motherboard has 2 unused SATA hard drive connectors. Anyone running an external SATA drive? It seems like the way to go, especially the ones with both SATA and USB connections.

external SATA drives are intended for when you have an external SATA connector say on the front or back of your case unless you want to open your pc for it.

My case has an external SATA, an internal SATA, 8 USB ports, a Firewire, and network card connector. I think the SATA is the fastest and would let me set up this external drive as a second drive.

in that case get the SATA if you can find one that also has USB.
