post #11911 of 29551
Dropped by BB and got some HDD's since they were cheaper than Newegg. Got a WD 2TB External (with USB 3.0, weee) for backing up my photos and a WD 1TB Passport (USB 3.0 also) for using when I tether on my MBP and for moving files around.

Think I'll go back on Wednesday and pick up one more 2TB External.

There's an idea.

I can drink legally ANYWHERE. Except in a fundamentalist Islamic country perhaps.

I have that same HDD. USB 3 is actually fast like it claims! Knocks the socks off eSATA.

USB 3 is faster than eSATA? :O Might be getting an external USB 3 HDD instead of some internal WD Blacks then.

This is what happens when you ask for computer help on FM (wasn't me btw):

What... the... hell. lol

I assume in the 2nd part he's referring to speedstep. But i'm not sure what he was on about in the first sentence.

I meant in terms of usefulness as an external HDD connection rather than raw speed. However, the few benchmarks I've seen between USB 3.0 and eSATA have them being nearly equal, with USB 3.0 beating eSATA in some cases. USB 3.0 does blow USB 2.0 and FireWire out of the water though.

I hated eSATA because the cords were very short, and the connectors were fragile and crappy, often pulling out accidentally. Also, laptops and most typical pre-build vendor PC's often don't have eSATA ports, whereas USB 3 is backward compatible with even USB 1.

For whatever reason, I couldn't get E-SATA to ever work for me either.

This is probably the wrong place to ask it but eh: Is it worth getting a USB 3.0 external enclosure for a 5400RPM drive?
post #11918 of 29551
I think I'll do Revodrive boot, 2 1 TB Blacks in RAID for Steam and whatnot, and 2 2 TB externals for photos (one for backup?). But I don't think I'll start my case mod until BF3 comes out so I can upgrade to GTX 580s.
post #11919 of 29551
Yep. USB 2.0 is slow.

Wow just realized after taking pictures at The motorshow yesterday that the Fiance bumped the ISO up to 2000 for a shot and here I still thought I was shooting ISO 640 .

So In short any bracketed shot I took and put together once resized looks horrid due to the amount of noise.
In the end the pics turned out OK other than the ones I was going to fool around and do HDR.
