I have an IMac MID 2011 .

I'd like your recommendations on the best 1.5 or 2 TB HD that allows USB 2 / firewire / thunderbolt connection to backup with Time Machine .

A solid USB2 or USB3 hard drive would work just fine for timemachine. Thunderbolt drives are $pendy & the thunderbolt cable is usually an additional fee. Firewire 800 drive 2TB you can get for about $200. A USB 2+ TB can be had for around $120 $130ish on amazon. 1 example is "WD My Book Essential 3TB External Hard Drive Storage USB 3.0" for $129.99
