Drive recommendation - thunderbolt vs Usb3
on Jan 29, 2016 at 9:09:36 pm

I am shopping for a new drive - USB3 or thunderbolt and in 6TB configuration.
Already have several single drives (thunderbolt,usb3,esata, firewire 800) which I am using for my documentary project and this one will be the last.
Any thoughts on which one to go for?
Is there a real advantage at using a thunderbolt drive vs a USB3 since the drives are spinning still at 7200 RPM/64 MB cache, even with drive configurations like the Lacie 2 Big Thunderbolt or the GRaid Studio?
What would best for speed vs best for affordability as well?
I understand that the manufacturer of the drive bay is less important than the drives themselves.
And I have had a Lacie drive fail on me as well as a Gdrive making some weird noise (I have backed up all footage).

Thank you for any good tips.
