Comparisons of Speed Performance of various USB Flash Drives

This reports on the speed by which files can be copied from a desktop hard drive to various flash drives purchased at Tiger-Direct, Amazon, & Costco. These flash drives are being used in the development of econometric software to do frequent backups at successive stages in work. Most files are not large and smaller flash drives are preferred for this backup work. Note the field in the table below "mb/min" which is our measure of speed. (Our location is in Boca Raton, FL near Military Trail & Hillsboro Blvd. If you would like to contact us, the E-Mail button on this page will get to us.)
