It can be, especaily if you've come back from a holiday with umpteen cards that need putting on a
computer, it's amazing just how slow USB2 is compared to USB3 once you're used to USB3.
Tonight I'll be off-loading ~8GB from card to computer, it usually takes a couple of minutes on USB3
with USB2 it's more like 15mins+
