    Ext powered have always been more reliable overall. With USB powered the interface can die before the actual HDD does...yes I do know from personal experience and it can happen with quality HDD types (pretty much all my stuff is WD but I do have a Seagate).
    Honestly if you're only going to use this at home (or somewhere else with mains power) then ext powered is best also because it's slightly cheaper.

    Current WD Elements ext powered vertical types have a power button at the back. So you can leave it plugged in via USB and have it turned off when not actually using it...this can increase drive lifespan 'cos it isn't idling when connected.

    ext sounds good then since I only want it for extra home storage. if I wanna travel with some extra space I'll grab a large sd card.

    What are ya up to Grouch?
    THE BEST METHOD to run PSX games (and everything else for that matter) is via Retroarch - http://buildbot.libretro.com/nightly/
    If you have any questions on how to set it up on Windows please feel free to ask, its very easy.
