You need to get you a fast 200X A-Data drive and set the new standard.
Like this one... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6820211051

I would have used it in this article, but it is lost in action... My cat put it some place and I've yet to find it.

I wonder why such a large memory manufacturer can't catch up speed wise to the likes of Super Talent/A-Data?

That sucks about your other thumb drive, I'd almost hope my cat choked on it.
