Hi guys, finding that tomshardware forums are useful i decided to make an account and my first post regarding the title above^^

i was just thinking about hard drive external enclosures and wanted to know if the speeds are different if i had an SSD (sandforce) in a 2.5" usb 3.0 enclosure vs a HDD (WD Black) in a 3.5" usb 3.0 enclosure.
i've searched online and had no luck whatsoever for an answer.

SSD in USB enclosure will be limited by USB speed.
