    No, I don't use USB hard drive, I use a network drive.
    But if you want a USB drive, there are those who got external power supply and they, as far as I know, work with Raspberry Pi without problems. Only the drives that get power from USB wont work because it's too much for the Pi.

    For me a network drive is better, because I plan to get 1 more Raspberry Pi for the bedroom, so I can access my media over the network from both Raspberries.
