Solved Thunderbolt 2.0 SATA vs. USB 3.0 SSD?

Specs: Macintosh , AMDAthlon II X2 215, 2.70. GHz / 4 GB RAM
I'm looking to connect an external drive to my MacBook Pro mid-2014 retina 15" laptop.

I won't be using this drive for backup. I'll be working directly with the files on the drive (in Adobe Creative Cloud apps primarily) much like one would if using the Mac's internal drive.

I wondering... which would be the faster, more reliable option to accomplish this? Using a 1TB SATA drive via a Thunderbolt 2 connection? Or using a 1TB SSD drive via USB 3.0?

Thanks in advance!
Susan
