    Hi All,

    i'm looking for a 32gb flash drive, but a lot of the stats seem to be for PCs with USB 3.0, so it's hard to tell what will actually be fastest on a Mac. I'm concerned about both read and write speeds for moving large files.

    In terms of real world performance with a Mac, what are the fastest USB flash drives?

    Get a USB 3 one. Even when it's in USB 2 mode, it will fully utilize the USB 2 bandwidth for speeds around 30Mb.
