5 out of 5 eggsgreat

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: Small, reliable, good capacity. Works on WIN 98, 7, Ubuntu, my car radio.

Cons: You can lose it - first thing, put a lanyard or something on it so that you can hang it around your neck or find it easily in a bag.

Other Thoughts: I've had this since they came out, whenever that was, and it has been a faithful performer for me. I've used it in every imaginable way. Nowadays, because of its small size, it's become my music storage and plugs into the car radio, where its small size makes it unobtrusive. I'll probably get the orange one for my in-house music backup because it will plug into my dedicated music laptop without sticking way out in back and I can sit the laptop on a shelf. Plus, it's the cutest USB drive out there. ;).

5 out of 5 eggsgreat little guys

Pros: Owned 3 of these for almost a year now, and they are still going strong. I really like that the whole case can be removed. Better options for the price now, but when I grabbed them up it was a good buy. I have one running ESXi in our datacenter, and one running FreeNAS at home. The third probably gets the most writes as I use it as a thumb drive. Never had any issues with it.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Better options for the price now, but at the time it was a sweet spot for my needs.

5 out of 5 eggsSurvived a washing machine

Pros: I bought this because it was the cheapest thing that was 4GB. I loaded a Win 7 x64 installer onto it. I thought I lost it for a while but turned out it was in a pants pocket and went through the laundry. Best part is that is survived and I still use it

Cons: The rubber sometimes comes off the stick when I try to pull it out of the computer.

2 out of 5 eggslow quality

Pros: Cheap, low profile, good amount of GB and 2 year warranty (though haven't tested it out yet)

Cons: 1 of 3 failed completely within 3 months while another has a loose connection and the 3rd one I rarely use so.

Other Thoughts: I am only using these for Anti-Virus Boot disks for shop testing PCs. I would not use these for backup or anything you don't want to loose.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggs1 out of 2

Pros: Nice compact size and decent transfer rate when they work!

Cons: 1 out of 2 went sour after five minutes. Sometimes it works, sometime the device is not recognized, and sometimes a windows warning that the device has malfuctioned will pop up regardless of which computer it is used on.

Other Thoughts: Very disappointed with the reliability of this model. I have a Patroit XPorter and it has worked flawless for years...this model...not so much! Not sure if it will be worth the shipping cost for an RMA.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We're sorry to hear that you are having some issues with your flash drive. Please don't hesitate to contact support, and what we could do is send you a tool that will allow you to factory reformat your drive.

Thank You for choosing Patriot Memory!

Best Regards,
Patriot Support

5 out of 5 eggsGreat price, great flash drive

Pros: Very portable. This flash drive is remarkably small, measuring about 1.5 inches in length and 1/16th of an inch thick; you won't have trouble fitting it no matter how crowded your usb ports are. Good read/write speeds for a flash drive, too.

Cons: None that I am aware of.

Other Thoughts: Casing on the outside is a rubber, transparent layer. It is very bouncy! The casing also slides off without too much hassle, but enough that it won't slip off by accident. Without the casing, it is a yet smaller, plain, metal piece with small holes on the sides. I wouldn't recommended taking the case off in case it gets exposed to a little water!

5 out of 5 eggsAwsome. Does what it needs to do

Pros: Good read write timings. The unit is good quality, and it will accept DMA assignments so you can boot you PC with it. I have put the FreeNas 8.0 (Unix) server software on it to boot a NAS server for a client. It is working as expected and still going.

Cons: NONE

1 out of 5 eggsinitial impressions good, but...

Pros: Small size; I like the ability to take the rubber off and use them for a nondescript component on the back of a motherboard for embedded boot. Good price.

Cons: If you were to put these on a keychain, the rubber boot may pull off if it were to be in your pocket and get dirty. They're relatively easy to pull off.

Unreliable. I've got 6 of them; one has already started reporting errors with light use, and one was DOA (nothing I plug it into detects it and the LED does not blink).

Transfer speed seems really low on the most recent ones I've bought compared to the ones I bought some months ago; I've yet to verify the binning or anything like that. Part of me suspects a bait/switch

Other Thoughts: The one that was DOA seems to be of a newer batch with larger, more a discernible 'binning'/serial number on the USB plug (which is on the older ones, just not as readily visible). It's larger print with "110125" and "4GB" on the plug ground/sheathing. This newer bin also seems markedly slow - no noticeable 'good' or 'bad' transfer speeds on the old ones (USB 2.0 flash drive, whatever), but the new ones are painfully slow. Debian 6 install took the better part of an afternoon on a new board...

1 out of 5 eggsGot a lemon

Pros: Nice little drive. Appears quite sturdy.

Cons: My drive intermittently disconnects from most computers that I have used it in. I don't use it anymore because I don't want to risk my data. At the price its at, I don't really think it's worth sending in.

It may be disconnecting because of the small size of the USB connector. It seems a little loose in the USB sockets. This may or may not be the issue.
