What a pity I don’t have any motherboard with USB 3.0 now. Some USB 3.0 memory sticks are really fast and those new Toshiba sticks seem even faster.

Ken, I remember fawning over the original USB specs. “Y’mean, I’ll have ONE cable going into my computer, with T-connectors for power, out to my monitor, keyboard, mouse, EVERYTHING? Just one cable! How wonderful!!”

I think the Jetson’s car will arrive sooner…

I wonder if these are still dog slow with small files like most USB flash drives are.

I think USB 3.0 itself is slow when writing small files. At least all the USB 3.0 sticks I’ve tested so far were fast enough when writing big files sequentially, but painfully slow when writing small files. ADATA’s 64GB Pro was faster than the others at everything - making USB booting drive, installing Windows 7/8 from USB, storing torrent files, copying from/to USB, etc. But at least some of these newest USB 3.0 sticks must be good enough at small file writes for portable use.

No way my Lexar P-10 is slow at anything, small files or large ones. Its faster than some SSDs.:wink:
