5 out of 5 eggsGreat USB drive, good price

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF64GSBUSB

Pros: - smaller in length than the previous USB 2.0 generation of XT drives
- fast read/write speeds
- good quality memory
- fair price

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I had been using a 32 GB XT (USB 2.0) for the past 5 years. This drive has gotten heavy daily use -- I am a professor, and use the drive to keep home and work machines in sync. I am syncing about 100 files/day on 3 machines using synchronization software. I was very pleased with my old drive, but when I saw the price of the USB 3.0 version, 64 GB no less, I jumped on it. This drive is significantly faster than the previous generation -- I would say 2.5 - 5 times faster. That is when it's connected to my new rig with 6 GB SATA III drives via USB 3.0. The drive is almost identical in construction to the other XT drives (rubber housing, cap can be easily lost). Did I mention that it was fast? Recommended.

5 out of 5 eggsFast in the right environment

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF64GSBUSB

Pros: looks and feels durable. It is as fast as they say in the correct environment. I doubt you could submerge it but it looks and feels like you could spill something on it without ruining it as long as the cap is on.

Cons: The cap doesn't stay on the back side well, no lanyard or key-chain included but that is not an issue for me.

Other Thoughts: I bench-marked it on my laptop @33.5mb/s read 25mb/s write sequential. 32mb/s read 0.8mb/s write random 512kb. My computer is pretty fast and powerful, when writing a random 600mb folder to the drive it operated around 5-6mb/s. My hdd is a 7200rpm disk. on my macbook air however it exceeded the read write specifications reading at almost 200mb/s and writing at over 50mb/s. I copied a 650mb folder to it on the macbook, the mac doesn't show write speeds but it took about 12-15 seconds so over 40mb/s. bottom line... if your copying to or from a hdd don't expect advertized speeds, if your read/writing to or from a ssd it should perform as advertized or better.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for large files

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF64GSBUSB

Pros: Perfect for transfer of large files. I moved 22GB to this drive in a matter of minutes.

Cons: I can see how someone might lose the cap easily. If you take the cap off and set it right in front of you, you won't lose it unless you are absent minded about it. It looks like there was an attempt to allow the cap to fit on the 'nub' at the back of the drive, but it doesn't stay well.

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive as a cheap, fast place to put some large files that needed to load very quickly.

CrystalDisk 5 passes w/ 4000MB test size averaged 177.1 MB/s and 92.47MB/s for sequential read and write, respectively. 512K block random read/write was much slower as expected (135.7/0.577) and 4K random was even slower at 7.386/0.055.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF64GSBUSB

Pros: *Relatively cheap compared to the others
*Water Resistant (though I haven't tested and truly don't plan on testing it just hope that if the day comes it pulls through)
*Some people have complained about the rubber coming off or peeling when plugging and unplugging it I have done this quit a few times since I've had it and even been a bit aggressive with it just to test it out and the fact that its really hard to pull from my case like death vice grip gotta give it a little wiggle.

Cons: *only 58.1gb, not really a con but in case it matters to someone you get shorted 6gb though in what tech does that not happen? HDD and SSD don't read what they supposed to have so if this 6 gigs makes a difference you may want to 1 up?

Other Thoughts: Relatively cool looking

2 out of 5 eggsFast but flimsy

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF64GSBUSB

Pros: Fast - getting about 30 MB/s write, about 130 MB/ss read on multiple small files over USB 3, about 20 read on USB 2.

Cons: Flimsy - pull out of rubber housing the day after I received it.

5 out of 5 eggsFast (subjectively)

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF64GSBUSB

Pros: Great looking, rubberized body. Subjectively feels fast but I have not run benchmarks. If you need largish FDD - solid choice (I bought mine on BF sale).

Cons: Nothing at the moment.

Other Thoughts: The only thing I'd be concerned with with any FDD is reliability, so should something happen in the future - I'll come back here with an update. But at the moment - I am pretty happy.

1 out of 5 eggsDefective Rubber Housing/Glue

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF64GSBUSB

Pros: Cool looking drive with high speed and capacity.

Cons: On just my first disconnect with this drive, the rubber housing pulled off and left the circuit board still attached into the computer's usb port.

Other Thoughts: If this rubber housing issue was fixed, I would probably have loved this drive and given it a 5-star review, but I cannot endorse this product for this defect.

3 out of 5 eggsWish the case stays on at least for a year

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF64GSBUSB

Pros: Large capacity for a decent price. The rubber housing making it tolerate the day-to-day usage of carrying it around in your pocket\laptop case.

Cons: The build quality of the device. The case came off on the 4th day of usage. I tried many different things to make it stay inside the rubber housing, but none worked. Everytime I need to pull it out carefully from the USB port to make sure that I dont damage the exposed circuitry.

Other Thoughts: Apart from the build quality issue, I really liked this device. I only wish it had worked in a decent fashion at least for a year to make the money I spent worth it.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Flash Drive, but..

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF64GSBUSB

Pros: Great read speeds!! Its patriot, very highly regarded company for flash media

Cons: The quality of the drive itself is in question here. I pulled it from the USB port and BAM! The entire rubber casing came off, just as described in other reviews. Its crazy that someone can charge this amount of money and yet sacrifice quality so much to pump a bunch of these drives.
