We know you've got questions, and if you're brave enough to ask the world for answers, here's the outlet to do so. This week's Ask Engadget inquiry is coming to us from Patrick, who can't wait another day to start taking advantage of his newfangled blue USB port. If you're looking to send in an inquiry of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.

"I just got a new laptop with a USB 3.0 port. I currently have a USB 2.0 external hard drive, but I would like to upgrade. First of all, is the speed boost really worth the money? Is there a speed difference between those that need external power and those that are powered through the USB cable? Looking for one that's 1TB to 2TB, and my price range is about $150, give or take. Thanks!"

It's certainly harder to come across a SuperSpeed bargain than a USB 2.0 bargain, but we're sure there's a few deals to be had. That said, reliability has to come into play here -- any well-rounded suggestions for this fellow? Drop 'em in comments below!
