I've tried a bunch.
Seems like the default NTFS format is best. I checked my speed with USBDeview
Using a startech 8gb ($12), works ok, I got around 12 w / 18 r, though I know that is a simplistic measurement. What program was it that does the complex testing?
Also, does size matter? And, what is the best economy stick on the market now, as in around $1/GB to $2/GB.
