    Hi everybody. First post here. Thanks for all the help you have already provided me just by reading the forums.

    I am considering an external drive, and since its Cyber Monday, today seems like a good day to get one. I want to connect it via USB to my ASUS AC router, and hopefully stream MKV movies to my xbox. I already figured out how to easily break them into 4gb files and put them in a format that is native for the xbox. If a 2 hour movie is about 8-9gb, will this router and USB 2.0 external HD be able to support that data rate? Or should i go with a NAS drive? Thanks in advance!
