I was wondering if purchasing the faster, more expensive usb memory sticks offers any useful function

That depends upon how you are using the flash drive.  If you buy a USB 3.0 flash drive and use it in a device using USB 1.0 or USB 2.0 technology, your speed will be reduced to the USB port where you insert the USB 3.0 flash drive.

I don't know about the PSR, but if I recall correctly, the Tyros 5 has USB 2.0.

My Tyros 4 is USB 2.x.

If you will look inside of any USB cable or USB port you will find they are color coded as follows:

1) White = USB 1.x

2) Black = USB 2.x

3) Blue = USB 3.x

4) Red or Yellow = USB Sleep and Charge

S970 uses USB2 but some sticks write faster which is what you want when recording Audio.

Interesting question.Have I got this right? I have a PST S770. If I want to record myself to a USB-stick I would be better of with a USB .0 stick? My keyboard is actually taking use of this?

What ever USB you use the keyboard will treat it as USB 2.

Eileen makes an important point. USB 1.1, 2.0 and 3 refer to the USB bus speed and protocol, not the actual memory speed. Public benchmarks and manufacturer specifications show that actual flash memory speed varies, sometimes significantly.

Flash memory write speed is substantially slower than read speed. This is a characteristic of the flash memory technology. Not all manufacturers rate the read and write speeds of their products, making it hard for the consumer.

This is why Eileen's comment is so important. When I find a particular drive that works reliably with my S950, I buy a few extra drives of that model as spares.

All the best -- pj
