How does the performance of an external SSD drive compare to an internal?
I'm assuming the connection would be USB 2.0 - would that be the limiting factor in speed? Is it a waste of money?
EDIT - To Clarify; what I really want to do is to decrease build time in Visual Studio. I've been told that SSD is the answer to all my problems; but it's a work machine and I'm not sure of the internals and I'd prefer not to have to crack it open.
I currently have a ST3250310AS Barracuda drive.
Also - how do flash drives compare to SSD?
