Re: USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt external HD?

Say your car can do 130mph. Put your car on a race track where other cars can do 200mph, your car will still only do 130mph. Same with your hard drive no mater what track (usb3 or thunderbolt) it still will only go as fast as it can. USB3 and Thunderbolt both go faster than your spinning harddrive so it dose not matter which bus you put it on. Thunderbolt being around $150 (drive + $50 cable) more than the USB3 seems silly to use it.
