I know Nintendo recommends getting one that has a separate cord for power, and connecting , anything else. Also why is the 300 GB Nintendo drive the same price as a 500 GB? Just because?

You don't have to get one with an external power cable.

You can also get one with a Y-cable which means the hard drive will be plugged into two USB slots.
