Sure you might be able to copy a 1GB file in about 3-4 seconds. But without the SSD it would take like 10 seconds. So, by giving up 6 seconds or so, I could spent 1/2 as much and increase my overall storage space by 30x. I'll take the latter. I just don't find speed to my external drive to the motivating factor...capacity is far more important to me on my external drive.
