For now, I only have the Sandisk Ducati 4Gb, but I plan to test out A-Data, OCZ and possibly other brand.
I already have tools for Windows (my work laptop), but I also want to test them out under Mac OS X since USB speed is very dependant on the hardware and driver used (I read that somewhere so I wanted to see it with my own eyes).

Hmm... Xbench is actually freeware (http://www.xbench.com/)
And does test any drives (fixed or USB).
I used it and have gotten the following results with the Sandisk Ducati 4Gb USB drive:
Sequential Write: 16.70 MB/sec
Sequential Read: 20.79 MB/sec
Xbench Sequential Result: 9.19
Random Write: 2.45 MB/sec
Random Read: 20.78 MB/sec
Xbench Random Result: 1.58
Not bad for a drive advertised as 20 MB/sec read/write!

I have done benchmarks on both Windows and Mac OS X.
