Default ReadyBoost Testing

Good Day People,
I have used ReadyBoost on my Win 7 x64 Home Premium systems for years; I use it on my 8 GB desktop and 2 GB laptop PCs. But I've never had a way to test the effectiveness of using the ReadyBoost technology, and I'm wondering what exists to test this technology.

Basically, I keep 2, 16 GB flash drives plugged into my quad core AMD rig with 8 GB of RAM, and a 4 GB flash drive plugged into my 2GB RAM Core Duo Intel laptop.

In effect, am I wasting my money on flash drives that I could put to better use (like transferring files)? Are these machines "faster" or in some other empirical way "better" than machines without these ReadyBoost devices?

Any suggestions for testing, or an article on the effectiveness of ReadyBoost, would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
