Hi i am buying the surface 3 i7 version 256gb model in October

i have been reading this forum seeing what problems people have been having , and also seeing the great stuff the surface 3 can do

i have one question , i will be using a wd external 2tb harddrive , has any one had any problems connecting harddrives etc

i have seen people have problems with other things trying to connect them via the usb slot

i have the san disk 128 gb card and although i use it for media mostly i have had no dramas at all, at £60 it was a reasonable price too.

I have an 1 TB WD Elements Portable drive connected with USB 3.0. It’s an 2.5" drive without power supply. I use it as backup drive without any problems.

Sean, if your Router supports it you can connect it directly to it, and access your drive on all your devices via Wi-Fi or Ethernet. You will then have your USB port free to use for other things.

well he can't do that if he's on a the boat can he? if you read his original post, he said he needed the HD for when he is on the boat...
