Our Compact Flash test was first. Here we see a nice steady line of performance that runs between 19 and 20 MB/s.

Our SD test gave us results that were a little higher. Once again a nice solid performance line, this time right at 20 MB/s.

The third and final test was run on one of the fastest large capacity SATA drives on the market. Here we wanted to see if the Universal Storage Adapter was able to max the USB bus. Here we see a nice solid 35 MB/s read and write which is pretty much the best you can hope for over USB 2.0.
