"As far as we know, effective rate reaches at 40MBps or 320Mbps for bulk transfer on a USB 2.0 hard drive with no one else is sharing the bus. Flash Drives seem to be catching up too with the some hitting 30MB/s milestone. For all we know, USB interface could become become the bottleneck for flash drives as early as 2008."
40MBps for a USB drive vs. 6MBps for a class 6 SDHC card.
If you spring for a Sandisk Extreme III card then you could test it in the slot and in a USB reader. http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-SDSDRX3-8 ... _pr_sims_i
I am not fond of dongles, and this would be a big dongle. Could it all be packed inside the Mini9?
I would be interested in figuring out which 16 GB SDHC class 6 cards max out the performance of the built-in slot.
