    Perhaps your virus scanner is reading the files and slowing things try. Try it without virus software running.
    I have large movie collection, I have tell my virus software ignore the "movie folder" so it doesn't slow down things when I stream my movies.

    Thanks for all the comments guys.

    I had e-mailed the supplier about the problem on Monday, and yesterday in the post arrived a replacement for one of the Sticks to try (no warning, it just turned up).
    I tried it last night and it was transferring the same files as I tried before - but this time at an average of 50Mb/s.

    I tried it several times last night and quite a few times this morning with consistent results.
    I e-mailed him this morning, and although he doesn't understand the problem or its cause, he is sending me a replacement for the second drive and told me to bin the 'faulty' ones.

    So providing that performs as well, and that they continue to perform - I am happy.

Anybody know of a beta-driver for USB3 and a Z77 Intel chipset? (on a MSI mobo) My USB3 is so sloow compared to same port in Windows 7. My daily backup of files, drawings and reports takes a LOT of time. This might be a windows 8 killer, if Intel and MS can't solve it.
