So for a flash based device, dont ever worry about if it is USB 1.1 or 2.0.

Lots of flash is much faster than that these days. On the Kingston USB 2.0 pen drive I have, there's a HUGE speed difference between USB 1.1 and 2.0. I'm not sure what the throughput is exactly under 2.0, but it's far faster than 1 MB/sec.
