    I need help again,hard drive help!

    With my IMAC 27" fully loaded coming soon, i need an external hard drive to store/run .mov .aif and .jpg (video, music and pictures) files.

    I plan to store all my .aif .mov and .jpg files into this external hard drive as i do not want to use the Fusion drive for all of these files.

    Can anyone recommend a hard drive?
    USB3 or Thunderbolt?

    Will i be okay with a regular HARD DRIVE 7400 or do i really need a SDD for this?

    Thank you!

    If it's for storage just get a desktop 3.5" HDD.
