So sad to say but it is true that all fingers are not equal and this also applies to USB flash drives. All flash drives are not equal, I repeat ‘not equal’. When USB 2.0 and 3.x is compared, you will see noticeable speed difference. Be that as it may, flash drives of same type of connector can be seen to have varying read and write speeds. You may not know this until you have a first-hand use and take note for yourself.

How can users test flash drive speed and what should be used?


Simple – use a benchmark tool designed specifically to assess how fast USB flash drive can be. The good part - it’s portable and free to download, just a click away!
