    MBP 17" 2.33 C2D (so a little over 2 years old here) using a new 500GB Western Digital MyPassport Studio ($139) on USB2 and FW800 interface, compared to the internal SATA that came with my MBP.

    they are good reliable drives but in no way great performers. heaps of benchmarks on the net, some have my MBP's internal listed.

    just for comparisons sake :wiggle:

    If I had a newer MBP they would be even higher yet.

    If i had more disposable cash, I would ditch the optical drive and put an SSD and a 500GB HD in this thing.
