I've bough a speedy USB 3.0 drive (Sandisk Extreme 32GB) just because i was tired of all the shitty USB 2.0 drives that couldn't even write at 30MB/s. Only one that i have that can do this since day one is Lexar Lightning II 4GB. But it's only 4GB and thats not enough anymore.

There is just not enough devices with USB 3.0 to make a proper use of them but USB 2.0 is EVERYWHERE. So 30-35MB write on a USB 2.0 port is pretty good. At least it doesn't take bloody forever like on crappy cheap USB drives with horrible 4-6MB/s write. Imagine using such low speed for 32GB drive or god forbid a 128GB drive... it would take days to copy something big to it.
