Thanks for the welcome Vroom and Alan for the introduction. Don't let Alan hype me up. I can't even remember what I had for breakfast. Did I even eat breakfast? crap!
The 1/2 speed and 1/2 price argument is a good one until you need that speed. Most of us do not do enough daily manual transfers to justify purchasing this unit. There are some professions were they would kill the neighbors dog to get one of these. My previous place of employment had contracts with large Telecommunications companies to configure Enterprise routers and switches for their fortune 500 company customers. It was a requirement that the stations not be connected to a network or internet, could not store ANY customer data on the workstation for Security reasons. It was a pain To move Cisco IOS versions and Config files from the secure station to workstation for each unit you worked on. We averaged 25 units a day. Encrypted USB drive was how we moved data back and forth. A drive with this speed would have been a Godsend and cut down on transfer times. Some Medical billing and coding places have crazy rules as well. Banks ect ect. To move a few movies and song? Doesn't justify the cost.
Maybe install Windows 8.1 or a Linux distro for on the move computing.
