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. -- <Insert your favourite quote here.> Erik Trulsson ertr1...@student.uu.se _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
