5 out of 5 eggsFaster then my other USB 3.0

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF8GSBUSB

Pros: Fast shipping, almost twice as fast as another so called usb 3.0 transcend 4gig. I was getting 5.2mb/sec with transcends and this one blazes at 9.4mb/sec.

Cons: I will lose the cap to this since its not attached in some way...but oh well thats my own habit with small things.

4 out of 5 eggsPATRIOT 8GB USB 3.0 DRIVE

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF8GSBUSB

Pros: USB 3.0 FLASH DRIVE, WORKS PERFECT, GOOD SPEEDS.

Cons: TESTED ON A WINDOWS 8.1 x64bit setup and ran ATTO Benchmark ... I may be doing something wrong but I am not getting advertised speeds. I formatted drive using fat32(default allocation size), atto benchmark with default setting shows 11mb write speeds and 30mb read speeds in a blue usb 3.0 port. usb 3.0 is supposed to be natively supported by Windows 8.1 so I didn't install any 3.0 drivers. I may have to try to install the drivers anyway. I am still happy as this device works just fine for my needs.

Other Thoughts: I wish my car moved at 30mb/sec.

1 out of 5 eggsHow Cheap!

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF8GSBUSB

Pros: The device itself is excellent.

Cons: I was very disappointed that they did not include a lanyard with the flash drive. They saved a 10 cents. How cheap! The other Patriot Flash drive I purchase had one.

5 out of 5 eggsBig, Kind of Fast and Cheap

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF8GSBUSB

Pros: Feels rugged.

Writes 20-32MB/s
Reads 85-105MB/s

For the price, and the usual pretty good but not flawless quality that Patriot drives bring, it was right on the spot for a way to carry files around quickly.

Read/Write activity light. Some drives now don't include this.

Cons: Could be faster, but then it would cost more.

Other Thoughts: I tried, hard to get the pair I bought to slip out of their housing. Not a chance. They are glued in there with something pretty strong. Must have been a bad batch of glue a while back. Ordered these on 10/30/13.

I always do a full file write then format since sometimes these less expensive drives lock up when doing an extended write. It's just my personal stress/break-in test. Both of these wrote 7.4GB without a hiccup. Passed the test.

2 out of 5 eggsDied after a few months

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF8GSBUSB

Pros: It was really fast when I got it, and worked nicely.

Cons: The cap almost immediately fell off and got lost - it's held on only by the friction of the rubber.

And then a few months later... it died. No response when I plug it into the computer. Too bad.

Other Thoughts: Other people here seem to have good experiences so maybe mine was just a fluke.

2 out of 5 eggsDoes not work

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF8GSBUSB

Pros: Works great on a mac pc but cannot get it to work on Windows 7 USB 3.0 port. Works great on USB 2.0 but cannot copy to the drive when in a USB 3.0 port. All it does is keep hanging up my P.C.

Cons: Cannot get it to work on Windows 7 USB 3.0 port. Works great on USB 2.0 but cannot copy to the drive when in a USB 3.0 port. All it does is keep hanging up my P.C.

Other Thoughts: Hope they fix it !
