Although the theoretical max speed of USB 2.0 is 60MB/s it is not actually
possible to reach that speed.
In practice the best transfer speed one can get over USB is 35-40 MB/s and
most of the time not even that.

Anything over 30MB/s with USB should be considered quite good, so the
25-27MB/s you are seeing are actually not all that bad.
Some other controller *might* give you a few more MB/s but probably not
more than that.
