    Hi guys,

    I'm just curious. Have anyone tried to run a "Black Magic Disk Speed Test" on their USB 3.0 External/Portable Drive?

    I just tried on my new WD My Passport (latest edition) and it gives me 75/75 MB. I think it is OK but I get greater speeds on my Buffalo Extreme.

    How much do you guys get and which drive do you use?
