If you dig around long enough on the Charter.com pages you will find some on SPECTRUM.  It is not clear when we will get the 60 Mbps Internet speed HERE, nor is it clear what you may have to do to get it.  I do note 2015 mentioned.

I guess the Fall appearances of "Threshold" are going to be downloadable Previews, late next month.  The full Windows 9 will apparently not be until spring 2015.  Here's the latest ZDNet story:

Hi Alan,

Thanks for the detailed comparisons.  I bought the budget 8Gb USB 3.0 flash drive from Microcenter.com.  The cost per unit was $4.99.  Shipping cost $4.  The total with tax came to $41.72.

Here's the link

Please note the the designation, superspeed, is certainly relative.

OK, this is the last test. This is the result of Ralph's budget purchase USB 3.0 for SLO Bytes to store it's data repository. Ralph can correct me but I think he paid $4 or so for these USB flash drives. As you can see there's not a huge difference from my older OCZ USB 2.0 flash drives especially in the read speed.

File system: FAT32
Read speed: 35.93 MB/s
Write speed: 15.29 MB/s

Here's the result of an older OCZ USB 2.0 flash drive. In their day this was a fast flash drive. I purchased the drive for it's read and not it's write capabilities since I would load into memory/install Microsoft/Linux OS's from this flash drive.

File system: FAT32
Size: 3820 MB
Read speed: 32.38 MB/s
Write speed: 8.98 MB/s

I now load into memory/install with a Zalman external enclosure with a older original OCZ SSD inside.

A few of us at the Linux group have Mushkin USB drives.

I took my Mushkin USB drive which has a FAT32 and a NTFS partition on the same USB drive and ran the test. I did not need the test to tell me this drive is FAST!!
Here are the results:

File system: FAT32
Read speed: 232.57 MB/s
Write speed: 188.96 MB/s

File system: NTFS
Read speed: 214.22 MB/s
Write speed: 225.68 MB/s

SPECTRUM is the name they were using on their web pages.  It did include the speed update. I note that they have made some changes along the way.  That's all I can find at this time.
