Time Capsule vs Airport Extreme + External USB HD
Jun 7, 2013

Is there any difference in WiFi and backup functionalities and performance between the following?

1. Apple Time Capsule

2. Apple Airport Extreme plus an Western Digital external USB drive?

Does the Airport Extreme provide enough power to power a Western Digital Passport? The reason I consider Option 2 is because I already have an USB driver and I can partition part of it for Time Machine and part for photo storage. Also, when I leave home for extended trip, I can take the USB HD and continue Time Machine backup by plugging it into the USB port of my MacBook.
