I am doing research on which drive is best for me. I am interested in the G-Technology G-DRIVE USB 3.0 4TB External Hard Drive (0G03594) ASIN: B00ND4DV9M
I noticed the G-tech site specifically states that the Thunderbolt 3 model comes with a “Enterprise-class 7200RPM hard drive” but the description for the usb 3.0 model doesn’t make the same claim. Does the USB 3.0 and thunderbolt versions contain different model drives? How can I tell which drive is included in each drive specifically the USB 3.0 4TB.
Also the way I understand it is that traditional 7200 rpm drives are bottlenecked speed wise by the spinning drive so Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3.0 would be around the same transfer speeds?
Thanks for the help!
