Benchmark your USB drives

Not all USB thumb drives are created equal.

If you’re like me you have a collection of USB thumb drives and growing.  Most seminars and conferences hand them out for free because they have become such a commodity.  The problem with these freebies is their performance.  I’ve been benchmarking some of the thumb drives I have lying around and as expected their read/write and seek times are worse than some of the drives I’ve purchased myself.  I used the datamarck utility for my testing.
