Hello,

Good question. I'm not sure whether my answer is correct, but seen the fast that you want to store 4TB (!), I think eSata would be better, since it should be faster than USB 3.0 . I think USB 3.0 is better for plug, play/copy and then take it out.

What exactly do you want to do? Do you have óne 4TB HDD? What I mean is, do you want to put the files on the HDD and then not use them for a long time or do you want to use it as a normal external HDD?

Hello,

In that case - for storage only - it doesn't really matter which one you use. The only difference is - as far as I know - that eSata would speed up the process a little bit. But since it's a one-time copy for now, it really doesn't matter.
