Is an expensive Thunderbolt drive worth it?
Specifically the 1TB USB 3.0 & Thunderbolt interface Drive
What are the USB 3.0 Speed Numbers?
So the Thunderbolt speed must be amazing?
OMG! They are Identical!
So why would I pay 3x the cost of a USB 3.0 drive?
-OR- Even more than a 2TB USB 3.0 Drive?
I got the drive to store virtual machines on. So I wanted it for:
Gives me a free USB connector, since the MacBook Pro only has two & I have a mouse dongle in one.
How about I get this USB 3.0 Drive, whose style fits the Mac
-AND- I get this bluetooth mouse to keep a free USB port?
So, I spend a little less money, have twice the disk space, with the same styling & a cooler looking mouse!
Sounds like a win!
