So I’m looking for an alternative to a Seagate drive. This will be a target for backups on a server needing to pump 500GB onto it in as little time as possible over USB 3.0. Thus BOT transfers will not cut it, need UAS/UASP. But all I can find in specs from Western Digital is “3x faster than USB2.” REALLY??? I know there are lots of variables in the way of gettinging full 5Gb on USB 3.0. But even if I’m conservatively cutting the 10x improvements in USB 3.0 over USB 2 in half–that would be almost DOUBLE what WD is advertising.
I have seen this asked before, and it went practically unanswered. I WANT to buy a WD drive, but I need more concrete engineering details than glib marketting!
So PLEASE, is there a list of which external drives support UAS/UASP?
