    Ok. I have been wondering. What is the main difference in using these in my norm day. I use it to store movies and write to other computers or play on a device.

    Is there a real speed difference that should force me toward another side?

    I usually read/write over 2gbs of data, sometimes more with bluray's.

    So what is the con/pro for either?

    How are you writing to/reading from your MicroSD? If it's a USB adapter, it won't be faster than the USB drive anyways.

    Yea, I am using an adapter for the microsdhc, so does that mean the flash drive is faster?

    I'm not sure of the write/read speed standards for the microsdhc on it's own, but since you're using a USB adapter anyways, the two options would be approximately the same speed.

    I personally prefer carrying a USB flash drive with me, but whichever is easier for you is the right choice - speed shouldn't vary much in this case.

    Like The_Gnome_ said, you're using a card reader, that is connected with usb. No matter how fast the card itself, it can only go as fast as the usb can.

    What does the iPad have to do with the question in this thread?
