Why do they still bother with USB 2.0 ? I mean USB 3.0 works with older USB as well, so why make it more crappy?

To answer that, a class 10 card has a max thoeretical transfer rate of 10 MB/Sec, whereas a USB 2.0 Port has a Max of 60 MB/sec (480 MBit/sec)

Sooo... the bottleneck is the card given current technology, though I'm sure things would be a little zippier with USB 3.0.

Cheers.

Specification fail. Class 10 means the product has a MINIMUM transfer rate of 10MB/s, maximum being closer to around 20MB/s. Add to that the practical transfer rates of USB2.0 (~30MB/s) and it's not such a wide difference as you paint it out to be.

Specification fail is producers not putting SD card slots on their netbooks!

In this situation, the target is a cheap dongle for microSD cards that are cheap in themselves. A USB 2.0 chipset is a lot cheaper than a USB 3.0 chipset. I might pay $5 for this dongle as USB 2.0, but not $20 for USB 3.0! Nuff said. Time will eat away at these prices, and USB 3.0 will be ubiquitous in 3 years time.
