It depends. If you get a decent enclosure and stick a drive in there you can get similar speeds to when connected to an internal SATA port. At least that has been my experience with the drives I have put in external enclosures.
For instance when I got my Pioneer BD rom drive I took out my LG UH12NS29/30 and put it in an exclosure. I then tried one of the titles I had tested ripping speeds with last week. I got similar speeds with it in the external enclosure. It was only around 20 seconds slower. They both hit over 6x speeds with the dual layer disc. I need to try it with a full 50GB disc to try and max it out. I do only h ave USB 2.0 enclosures so that will limit how high it can go. I really should get a USB 3.0 enclosure for this LG drive since it is faster than the other drives I have in external enclosures.
