Should do

What i meant was what its rated and real world performance is usually lower and by how much depends on the way they did the test vs the way you do your copying

Just tried again with my older Kingston data traveler 16gb, and transferring a 3gb video at 7MB/s much faster.

Does that mean that my newer flash drive is a dud if it maxes out at 2MB/s? Both transfers are using TeraCopy

usually the cheaper the stick the worse the write speed is .... I've two 16GB sticks one is an Lexar Jump drive and the other an Sandisk Cruzer edge the cruzer cost twice as much and out performs the jump by quite a bit on large file transfers and small

Transfers Via TeraCopy Pro
Large file write (4GB) = Cruzer 8.2MBps / Jump 4.8MBps
small file wirte (1.3GB of pictures/mp3s) = Cruzer 5.2MBps / Jump 3.8MBps

the jump drive cost me $12 and the cruzer cost $23
