1 Lots of HDD RPMs and company suggestions, but to the point...
3 My two cents are: ESATA. I have multi TB external disks which I have
4 physics data stored on and needs to be analyzed. USB might be as fast
5 (in the best case), but it uses processor overhead.
7 Not that a lot of machines support that kind of input. I picked up a
8 decent laptop for cheap that also supports ESATA. I didn't do
9 benchmarks or anything, but it's really insane IMO.

13 PS Sorry I deleted all the reply text. I didn't want to copy/paste
14 individual references to different company external drives and so on,
15 just to not really care. Mine is something by Buffalo, but I care
16 because it has ESATA.
18 PPS Or you could be my friends using USB formated NTFS and I can use
19 top to see how much processor power is used by ntfs-3g just to read
20 the data. Ugh!
