So what is the latest and greatest external hard drive to use with the 211? Any suggested vendors?

Thanks.

My 1tb died, might have been due to leaving it on top of my subwoofer but I really thought it was shielded. It may have just decided to die. Who knows.


Bought a replacement hard drive on cyber Monday...hoping the 1.5 tb works for me if not I will have to rethink some things.

Don't know what my software is on that 211k, think its L5.52.

Edit: 1.5tb works on 211k.

You should be fine. The 211s take up to a 2TB EHD.
