Looking for usb 3.0 recommendations

Hello,

I just learned of usb 3.0 and looking for an external drive. I need 1.5gbs, but if above is reasonably priced the more the better.

The drive will be used as a read data drive - for my chess playing program to access endgame tablebases. I figure I'll need a usb 3.0 with a 7200 RPM drive but I can never find the RPM on external drives.

Any recommendations? I'm looking for performance over budget. $200 max.

  1. If you want an externally-connected USB 3.0 drive and you'd like to know exactly what actual drive it uses, you could always assemble one yourself. You just need to buy a USB 3.0 drive enclosure such as this one:

    ...and then install any 3.5" SATA hard drive into it - for example:
