Tags: Hard Drives Velociraptor Western Digital External USB Storage Last response: January 2, 2013 1:54 PM in Storage Share merve999 January 2, 2013 12:31:51 PM Hi. I'm new to the forums so apologies for any mistakes. I have a USB 3.0 enclosure waiting for a 3.5 HDD. I was wondering if I would benefit from using a Western Digital VelociRaptor (10,000rpm) rather than a 7200rpm HDD. Thanks.

I think the USB 3 bus would apply more latency making it less useful. Just get a caviar black drive. It will be plenty fast enough. Or if you really need speed then an esata ssd Can't find your answer ? Ask !
