I have found that using a USB hub that is direct on the mother board 
also makes a huge difference.  The original front USB ports on the case 
are good, whereas the USB port expansion (+SD readers etc) in the Floppy 
Drive bay is pretty well useless with my Samsung Galaxy S (both with the 
old Vodaphone Android and now CyanogenMod).
