What do you mean by this? Is your current machine unable to make use of anything faster?

T7 needs higher than USB 3 to support its higher speed, right?

Well, like I said, I don't plan to be able to run faster than 500mb. This drive will be strictly external.toalan wrote: ↑ Best bang for buck would be to get a NVME drive that has DRAM and put that in a NVME to USB 10Gbps enclosure. There is not much of a price discount if any for NVME to 5Gbps enclosure.
You can always install the NVME drive into your computer when you upgrade to a newer machine that has a NVME slot.
I run a NVME with a cheap orico 10Gbps enclosure from Aliexpress, on ports with 10Gbps I get about 800-900 MB/s seq reads. On USB 5Gbps ports it runs almost at exactly half of that.

Well, I'm really considering the 2gb T5 because I have to get it before Black Friday (a birthday), and I'm not too concerned with futureproofing when I'm not too concerned about speed, and the cost is a lot more for that speed.
