Or a firewire drive. :)  Ever since Apple introduced me to firewire, I've 
put $15 Firewire cards in most of my home *BSD boxes.  Works very well, 
and is faster than USB 2.0 on sustained transfers.  Also less CPU 
overhead...  I've been really impressed with FreeBSD's firewire support, 
it's been pretty much glitch-free for me.
