Testing & Results
The SilverStone FP37 was benchmarked using CrystalDiskMark 3.0.1 to obtain the average read and write speed to the device. The FP37's performance was also compared against a USB 2.0 media card reader on the same computer platform.
The table below shows the results of the testing for three different media card types.
It can be clearly seen that a USB 3.0 devices generally faster for all media types, but there is a dramatic increase in speed when accessing high-speed CompactFlash devices.
The benefit of using a USB 3.0 media card reader becomes apparent when high-speed CompactFlash devices are the primary means of storing and transferring data. A nearly 4 times increase in transfer speed can result in real time savings.
