Anything I should know before getting a external HDD for the Wii U?

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?

once the wiiu formatted my drive, when i turn on my wiiu it also turns on the had drive, and when i shut down the wiiu it also automatically shuts down the hard drive, i dont have to do it manually

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.
