agreed there personally - not for the percentage.
if it were measured by what is possible, yes it's inordinately slow. but i highly doubt 99% of
users/consumers are using their usb 2.0 hard drives, and being put off by the speed. i'm sure
they'd be happy with faster, but insufficient to me means being to poor for use, which i don't
agree that it is for most users.
i don't think they think much about it, it just is.
