Editing and finishing on USB 3 works great.  Just wrapped up a Smithsonian Channel show where the editor edited on a 2012 Macbook Pro using a USB3 drive, and I onlined with my 2012 Macbook Pro.  First show we did that was done solely on laptops. USB 3 drive worked great.
I started to online on my tower, but the connection was USB2, so playback was sporatic.  Switched to laptop.
