Phil Schiller - "We don't differentiate our USB ports between USB 3.0 and 2.0, by making them a different color like our competitors. Our USB is awesome!" What a crock of *****e!! I recently transferred a whole bunch of pics from my old PC to my mac via USB 2.0 flash drive. Took forever on the mac. I decided to run a test... I transfered 3 700mb files to the flash drive in Mountain Lion. It took 15 minutes!!! Then I was planning on using boot camp to run the same test with the same files on Win7, but no need. Instead, I decided to run the comparison via Parallels using the boot camp partition. Same three files transferred in Win7 via Parallels to the flash drive in under 7 minutes! I wish i ran this test when I was still on Lion. My Mac Pro at work is over 5yrs old and still running Leopard. I'm going to run the same test tomorrow at work and see what results I get. I don't ever recall USB transfer being slow on it, compared to the snail's pace I'm getting on rMBP/ML combo.
