USB 3.0 = 625 MBb/s. What's the point if the HD performance is only 233 MB/s?
Just because USB 3.0 runs that fast doesn't mean the drive itself has that kind of performance.Loving Thunderbolt (especially the Firewire-esque daisy chain), but price for the hardware is still too high for me to jump into it. Don't want to spend an extra $60-$150 just to get a motherboard with Thunderbolt.

It is WD after all. They aren't too on-board with this newfangled (?) SSD market. Their only attempts at SSDs haven't been affordable/competitive at a consumer level. Platters are still where it's at with WD. They definitely do platters well.
