USB is an interface and isn't inherently bad. IMO, what is inherently bad (as I've stated above) is the cheap USB interfaces on HDD manufacturer externals which sell for less than their internal...

Just so long as the HDD inside the external drive is at least 7200 RPM. 5400 RPM can be painfully slow when transferring large files.
