Submission + - 26 USB flash drives reviewed

DisorderlyConstruct writes: The folks over at moka5 wrote a review of 26 USB flash drives, evaluating synthetic benchmark and real-world performance. What's interesting is that the synthetic benchmark scores often don't correlate at all to real-world performance, or even to what the manufacturers themselves report. Are the USB manufacturers focusing on microbenchmark scores at the expense of real-world performance?
