I am going on a trip this summer and wanted an extra storage device to back up my FlashTrax. Since I did not need a review screen for tha back up device I ordered a 100 gb Hyperdrive.
Today I came back from a hike with 117 RAW photos on a 4 gb Extreme III card and decided to time the download time to my computer using a USB2 Sandisk card reader, to the Hyperdrive and to the FlashTrax. With the card reader I used the RawShooter Premium down load utiity so that I would get all files in one directory on my hard drive without a bunch of extra subdirectories.
Hyperdrive - 2:08
USB2 cardreader - 2:18
FlashTrax - 16:13
I knew the FlashTrax was slow, but I didn't realize it was that slow. Hyperdrive claimed to be fast, it turns out it really is.
