    The results page seems very dificult to follow and is that chart correct.

    1)It seems to have writes far faster than reads going by the key.
    2)You state that the Kingston is 3 times faster than the ADATA but in the chart that seems reversed.

    Maybe its early and I'm reading it wrong.

    It's the key that's wrong... the key says "MB/s", but the chart scale is actually measured in seconds...

    Are we going to get a USB3, Ready Boost, Win 7 comparison? It didn't really seem to worth it it in Vista with USB2.

    i too am confused by the graphs although if it really is in MB/s i'm overall unimpressed. i'd rather do a software raid usb2.0 setup with 2 8gb drives than buy one of these. usb3 has so much more potential than this

    Actualy that now makes far more sense. Good thinking that man.

    Disapointing that the person who posted the review hasn't been on to clarify.

    And still most USB 2 flashdrives struggle to even saturate that bus.

    All my flash drives got inferior write speeds.
    And my SanDisk Cruzer 16GB is the fastest one with ~13MB/sec write speed.

    I don't know. It makes sense to me.
    Let's take the 12 GiB Steam Backup.
    # Kingston DT Ultimate 16GB (Large Files) the
    read takes 150 seconds
    write takes 221 seconds

    Yes but it said MB/s before the review has been on and fixed the graph.
