I don't understand why can these drives churn out 150MB/70MB transfer rate on USB 3.0 but they fail to even reach 35MB/s on USB 2.0 in both directions. Makes no sense. I had Lexar Lightning II USB 2.0 thumbdrive which was reaching 35MB/s on USB 2.0 easily. Write was also very close to 30MB/s (28-30MB/s) So why can't these easily reach 35MB/s in both directions. Thats the maximum for USB 2.0...
