    A USB 3.0 2.5" enclosure and a small (or large) capacity 2.5" SSD drive will be the fastest external drive.

    Or something like this is pretty fast and smaller too:

    You've got a few options depending on your budget. How much are you looking to spend?

    Fastest/Most Expensive

    - Thunderbolt SSD
    - USB 3.0 SSD
    - USB 3.0 HDD
    - USB 2.0 HDD

    Slowest/Cheapest
