    I am thinking about getting an Acer Iconia, one reason being it has the USB capability. I keep all my music and video on an external HD that I connect thru the USB to whatever computer I'm using. Sometimes when I travel I bring a video on a thumb drive and watch it thru the USB.

    Will I be able to watch movies or hear music on the tablet if the files are stored on the the external HD or a flash thumb? I can do this no problem on any of my other PCs, but I don't know if data passes too slowly thru the tablet's USB to allow this. I would rather not move the music onto the tablets internal storage...
