If it is up to scratch, then great; either way it would be good to validate. Speeds can vary on different machines too though, chipsets vary, CPU and other details vary ... so benchmarking can give poor results with some equipment and better results with other equipment. The "Universal" part of USB is just the port, the attached equipment is often not very universal at all (hence the need for specific device drivers). > Or maybe you just want to know what speeds to expect when doing > real-life transfers?

Yes, if you know you have a slow drive, like some Sandisk 64GB USB 2.0 sticks I brought recently (comatose slow) ... you can use them for specific non time critical storage. Get better USB sticks [or other media] for works that need transfers done more quickly. Cheers A.
