Please correct the "specified sequential xxxx speed": You used Mbps term, but numbers are MB/s.
USB 2.0 is 480Mbps, so "80 Mbps" of the fastest specification (Kingston) is well within USB2 (if I take it literaly).

It was MBps everywhere in the review, not Mbps, but I see where it is confusing, so we replaced it with MB/s.
Thank you for your feedback!

480Mbps = 60MB/s
But because of overhead and stuff, you cannot have more than 50MB/s anyways on USB2.0

On a side note, I have found out that even with USB2.0 HDD you cannot achieve more than 35MB/s transfer when copying files ON the drive....
