Hopefully the info is helpful.

Thanks for posting this. It's helpful for me. I've been trying to figure out an external hard drive strategy to use with my new iMac, now that I have a desktop with both Thunderbolt and USB 3.

For a while, I had been using a Drobo through Firewire 800 for overflow storage on my old iMac, but it was painfully slow (due to the Drobo, no doubt). I'm pretty much done investing in that other than for backup storage.

Right now I'm exploring the best option for external drive storage. I have about 4TB of data (some of which should get archived or deleted) and I'm looking to use a combination of the iMac's 1TB drive and a 4TB external drive.
