2.0, and honestly, speed is not even an issue unless you need it to be fast. 
It's more about the versatility, the packaging, how tough it is, how easy it 
is to lose the cap, if it's low power, bootable...It's everything else, but 
the speed, no matter who tells you that. The arstechnica article was 
amazingly useful.
