I'm staying at university accommodation and I want to turn my existing Ethernet internet into Wi-Fi and I also need a hard drive. Should I get this?

    ABSOLUTELY! This drive is perfect for you. I had wi-fi when I got this product so I was really just getting for the backup drive. After I set it up, though, it actually improved the speed of my internet connection over my at&t router and it has worked perfectly as a backup drive. 10 out of 10.

  • This should fit your needs perfectly. If you're not planning on backing up to it using Time Machine, and already have a USB External HD, you may also want to consider getting an AirPort Extreme instead, and just plugging the HD into it to save a bit of cash. (Backing up to a HD connected to an AirPort Extreme is not supported by Apple.)
