Wolfgang I was going to get ATTO but they have a long registration form to download it, so I passed.

I never had this problem. Use the Softpedia link that Hoppy posted.

I also tried the ATTO home site. Disk Benchmark | ATTO
I'm not sure what the registration is for either other than support.

Either way Softpedia is the easiest.

It looks a bit slower than mine, but then it is still pretty fast. I paid $60 at Newegg for my 16GB. I thought that was expensive, but wanted the fastest for 'Windows 8 on the go'.

Here's my 64 GBs Voyager GT USB 3.0 benchmark, FAT32 formatted:

Name:  CVUSB3_ATTO.png
Views: 11
Size:  42.8 KB

It does slap around HDDs, but doesn't even come close to SATA 2.0 SSDs.

<runt>
Windows 7 cannot format larger than 32 GBs drives with FAT32 file system, called eFAT in MS terminology. This is a Microsoft imposed formatting limitation, it can mount FAT32 partitions upto around 2 TBs. The Linux Live CD, or iMAC have no such formatting limitation. Nice going MS, forcing me to download disk formatting utility just to format a flashdrive...

Here's a comparison SSD to HDD.

Some USB experiments.

-usb-3-stick.jpg

-usb-2-stick.jpg
Both are FAT32.
This CrystalDiskMark froze the whole machine wile doing the USB 2 pendrive in the USB 3 slot. It would not even reboot, I had to do a hard shutdown. Think I'll quit using that one.

I just upgraded the firmware in my OCZ Vertex 4 SSD. Made a big difference. The original firmware was 1.3 (what the SSD came with) and it has been updated to 1.5. Ignore the different drive letters, that was because I had to reinstall the drive from an Acronis Backup and it was assigned a different drive letter in Windows 7. The drive is my Win 8 OS drive.

My Intel SSD (my Win 7 OS drive) is also included.

That made a pretty good difference Fireberd. I know there are others with a Vertex 4, if they are having issues with their speeds, they might want to look into a firmware upgrade too.

Thankfully mine came with version 1.5, but I was ready to update before it arrived.
