Default Compatibility large external USB 3.0 Disks with Asus RT-N66U

Hi all!

I would like to share information on large external USB Disks so that other users know what to buy best.

I will start with my Disk and the information Merlin already mentioned. Speed measured by Ethernet transfer.

Would be great if other members post their experience as well.

tnx

fregatte

fregatte, please check USB connection speed. Some USB3 enclosures may use fall into low speed mode.

Good hint, I amended the measured results above in my chart. Speed is quite poor for my Disk.
