By knowing read/write speed of a USB flash drive, you will get an idea how much time it would take to complete a file transfer between your PC and USB flash drive.

Then choose a test mode (read, write, read + write or read + write + verify) from the drop down list at the bottom-left. Click on the Start button to begin the test. The test would take several minutes to complete depending on the size of your disk.

The real-time test result will be displayed on the graph. You can compare speed of two USB flash drives by testing them one after another.
