Just wondering what USB sticks people would recommend with fast transfer rates.
I currently have a 2GB Sandisk cruzer micro. Great size and durability, but very slow transfer speeds.
I’m curious as to what would be a good program to measure transfer speed? I just got a small sony stick and would be nice to know how fast it is.
I find Corsair Flash Voyagers fast and durable.
16GB usb stick from play.com…works fine…
I have a SanDisk Extreme Cruzer Contour 16GB I bought for â‚¬50. 20Mbps read and 18Mbps write.
Just ordered this16Gb USB drive from MyMemory.co.uk for Â£19.99 delivered 15mbps read 12mbps write, seemed like decent performance for the money.
how do you measure the speed?
You could use software such as HDTach or transfer a file to and from the stick and time it. I prefer the lazy option!
