    Default Getting tired of usb drives

    So,

    since i'm getting tired of USB drives started to do a quick search around for SSD externals.

    This seems a tad expensive but, could be worth it what do you guys think?

    Either wait, or build your own. (get a 2.5 inch USB 3 enclosure) ($300 is a ripoff)

    e.g.,

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148946

    same storage, and you save $100

    The main difference is that the samsung uses a m sata 850 evo

    For write endurance, it may be a tossup between the 2 drives, the 2.5 inch drive is using a smaller process node MLC nand, while samsung is using a larger process node (thus more endurance), but a significant portion of the endurance is sacrificed through TLC.

    both SSD's will offer reads and writes which are higher than what the USB 3 bus can offer, (the best USB 3 controllers top out at a little over 400MB/s )
