Default SSD in external usb 3.0 enclosure

is it a waste to put a sata III ssd into external usb 3.0 enclosure?
will this be faster then a normal 5400rpm external hhd in external usb 3.0 enclosure?
also will usb 3.0 be able to max out the ssd speed?

thanks in advance

It'll be waaayyy faster than any HDD as long as you have a proper Intel USB3 controller on the motherboard. A good USB3 is a bit faster than SATA2, but still not as fast as SATA3.
