I'm looking at buying La Cie Rugged thunderbolt for all my current audio files and
Are the higher speeds that SSD offers worth the extra expense?
Here they say thunderbolt is 12X faster than firewire: http://www.which.co.uk/technology/computing/guides/thunderbolt-and-usb-3-0
Here they say Firewire 800 is equal to approximately 800 Mb/s
(megabits per second), since there are 8 bits in a byte, then this would be 100 MB/s
(megabytes per second). http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=690158
they say The LaCie Rugged SSD offers up transfer rates as high as 380MB/sec and the HDD
variants claim up to 110MB/sec.http://www.engadget.com/2012/09/25/lacie-rugged-usb-3-thunderbolt-drive-pr
So does that mean HHD thunderbolt drives are hardly any
faster than firewire? an extra 10 MB?? if so is this because the disc can only spin so
A Lacie rugged 1TB HHD is £140 while a 256 GB SSD drive is £236.
I thought The HHD look pretty fast already until i started researching. Now I don't know
my thunderbolt from my ass.
Can somebody shed some light on this?
Cheers and kind regards
