Hi, you say transfer speed of up to 5gb/s but what is the average or typical speed? Thanks

Asked by: David_mk
The figure quoted is a max attainable speed based on optimum conditions. However this can be affected by many factors including but not limited to. Speed of processor on host device Method of connection and number of cascades on the USB interface (is it plugged into a hub for example as this affects overall transfer speed) Other tasks being carried out by the system. Where you are copying from and to.
