Hi all, I hope I'm posting in the correct forum.
I also tried a search within this forum with no luck.
I'm looking to purchase a larger 3.5" external HDD for Imaging and storage. My current EXT HDD is 120GB which has become much too small for my current needs.
I've done some reading about usb 3.0 transfer rates and some articles say that the rate is much slower when using an Express card adapter.
I'd would really like to hear some advice on the performance of a 2.0 to 3.0 upgrade VIA an Express/54 laptop card or if there is another way to upgrade to USB 3.0... Possibly using an existing USB 2.0 port???
I'd also love to hear from members that have purchased 1TB or larger USB 3.0 EXT HDD's (I'm leaning towards a 1TB drive because of the cost) and how the transfer rate is with the 2.0 to 3.0 adapter card.
I have an HP DV6885SE laptop/Windows 7 Pro with the Express/54 card slot and 3 USB 2.0 slots.
I'll be using Acronis True Image for the backups.
Thanks to all for any help and hardware suggestions.
