So I have been waiting for new faster port replacing USB 2.0. And I’m glad MyPassport is now USB 3 compatible but I realized that it didn’t really matter.
Indeed, even if new connection standard are faster, the hard drive might not be:
USB 2.0 = 48 MB/s
3.5" 7200RPM = 140 MB/s (maximum)
SATA 3Gbps (eSATA) = 300 MB/s
USB 3.0 (bi-directional )= 500 MB/s
SATA 6Gbps (eSATA) = 600 MB/s
Thunderbolt = 10,000 MB/s
So I’d like to know: what is the transfert rate of the 2.5" MyPassport drives ?
