  1. I have been experimenting with some RDX USB 3.0 External Hard Drives from HP as a possible SMB/SME standardized platform, and I'd like to know how they compare performance-wise to more conventional off-the-shelf external USB 3.0 hard drives. Is there a reputable performance comparison published online that includes RDX, and, if not, if there an off-the-shelf USB External HD comparison study that uses benchmark tests that I could perform myself on my own RDX units to create my own comparison? (I'd be happy to share my results) Note that the physical write protect switch on RDX hard drive cartridges gives RDX a comparable advantage for many SMB/SME applications that would benefit from ReadOnly mounting of datasets, although the price differential, at this time, makes RDX a bit pricey per MB of storage. As I'm interested in network security forensics, hard drive imaging & disaster recovery, critical data file backup & recovery, bootable Windows To Go & Linux Workspaces, and Windows 7 to Windows 8/10 migration testing, the price differential might be more palatable if RDX drive performance is acceptable compared to non-write protected off-the-shelf USB hard drives. I've notice that storage experts use benchmark tests like Iometer, H2Bench, DiskBench, HD Tune Pro, Crystal Disk Mark, AS SSD Benchmark, ATTO DISK Benchmark, and others. Which one would you recommend for my testing & comparison purposes?
