IIRC that Segate unit uses a single 2.5" hdd that will max out loooong before saturating either interface. So I would say the real world difference would be so close to zero that it would not matter. As long as your computer can handle the overhead AND push data fast enough either USB 3 or ThunderBolt will be more than 'good enough'.
