Your not looking for speed so much on a Time Capsule as reliability. I think you would do better with a Seagate Enterprises drive.

Hi Mayer, thanks for your answer. I checked pricing for the Enterprise drive but it's more expensive than a new TC. Maybe I looked for the wrong model. Any other suggestions?


Well. since speed is not a issue on a backup drive, just go with a standard 2TB drive.
