Why is USB always so PAINFULLY SLOW?
So for the longest time, probably since my Vista/XP days, i've always felt USB transfers in windows to be ridiculously slow.
I've just bought myself an Asus Zenfone 6 (latest flagship phone) and i'm transferring a few number of files to the device via USB 3.0 (blue)
6GB transfer (of 40 so far) has taken over an hour, on usb 3.0.
This is absolutely ridiculous.
Why are USB file transfers always so unbelievably slow? Especially with new USB standards? My internet connection is multitudes faster!
Whats the point in newer usb standards when speed barely changes at all?? (Yet our file transfers continue to increase in size?) is there a way to improve it?
