This was something I threw out yesterday and would like to expand the conversation. I was disappointed to find just an ethernet hookup on my 3tb Live and this has proved to be as frustrating as my initial fear suggested. The ethernet/router method doesn’t seem to be the ideal way to load tbs of data into a drive. The USB 3 would be ideal for initial uploads as you can avoid so many bottlenecks. It’s also just a plain handy connector. It’s important to keep in mind that people aren’t trying to fill these gradually always. A lot of us have tbs sitting around that we’ve been waiting to stuff into a network box. How that’s going right now, I’ll have to get back to you in a week or two
Any thoughts? Whomp me good.
