I'm wondering if any of you guys have a preferred external drive for on-the-go use. Actual use, not just back up. In looking for the fastest externals I've pretty much found that USB 3.0 with an SSD is pretty legit. Thunderbolt seems to only have a slight edge (and not many options). I specifically want bus-powered so as to only have to plug in the macbook pro. Here are my top two choices: OWC Envoy Pro EX 240GB Portable, Bus-Powered USB 3.0 Storage Solution with OWC Aura Pro SSD http://eshop.macsales.com/item/Other%20World%20Computing/ENVPROU3S240/ Averages about 416mb/s READ 430mb/s WRITE $320 for 240GB Akitio - Neutrino Thunderbolt Edition - 256GB - bus powered. http://www.akitio.com/portable-storage/neutrino-thunderboltedition Averages about 502mb/s READ 311mb/s WRITE $340 for 256GB Have you found any others that compare? Which would you choose?
