External usb hard drive & music

  The Dazza 11:55 18 Jun 2006

I am thinking of getting an external hard drive and just using it purely for music.The question I have is will it play back music from this external drive as good as an internal one.The reason I ask is because it connected via usb as opposed to inside the pc by IDE, so basically is USB as good/fast as IDE??

There will be no problem as the connection speed is more than enough for high quality music.
