If the thing you're transferring to is a mechanical hard drive (most externals) it will be slow.

If you really want to utilize the speed you need a USB 3 thumb drive like the Lexar JumpDrive Triton (138 MB/s) or Kingston HyperX (150+ MB/s)

Did you expect an SSD on a stick for $9?

USB 3.0 is just an interface and it can not transfer information faster than the read and write speed of the slowest component in the process

i find it more worrying that there still isn't a solution for transfer corruption potentially killing your HDD... eg. like if power goes out or something while transferring.
PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

When buying flash drives, you need to look for their rated speeds or preferably real speeds from user reviews. The DataTraveler 100 G3 is rated at 40MB/s reads and 10MB/s writes. That's within USB 2.0 spec, so USB 3.0 on that drive is pretty much useless.....For a really fast drive, my recommendation would be the SanDisk Extreme USB 3.0. I get 180MB/s+ writes to it with large files.
Wow. Very sig. Such original. Wow.
