The 3Tb "external" version of the 3TB XT is a cut down drive (half the cache, etc etc). Its main goal is size, with low noise and low heat output. As an owner of the 3tb XT external it does amazingly well at these goals...but I wouldn't want to use it as my "OS" drive (its actually my "M" data drive in my main rig). THIS drive on the other hand looks to be VERY sweet and looks to be one fast drive. :)

YMMV
