5 out of 5 eggsA fantastic reliable USB flash drive.

Pros: + Has a metal case to avoid damage.
+ Is USB 3.0 allowing faster transfers.
+ Slim, light, and compact design.
+ 64GB

Cons: - The LED isn't very bright, and sometimes doesn't work even though the product is working and detected by the computer.
- Only available in one color as of this review.

Other Thoughts: The flash drive has a metal case, and is extremely slim, allowing you to easily throw it in your pocket and forget about it. I have had no issues with it crashing, and being able to store up to 64GB is extremely useful! I use it primarily school, and the fact that it is using usb 3.0 I am able to transfer files for my programming class extremely quickly and efficiently.

3 months after buying the product it has not failed, so at this point it's hard to say how reliable it is, but I will edited my review if it does fail.

4 out of 5 eggsHappy with the drive

Pros: Small, GB size

Cons: No strap

Other Thoughts: Have used it many times and am having no issues, so far its been a good drive. Just wish it came with a strap, it is very small and easy to misplace.

When on sale this is a good deal, would buy again

5 out of 5 eggsGood product

Pros: I have had three of these units in use for about a year, and all continue to work as intended with regular use. Recently purchased two more.

Would note, however, that my use has almost exclusively been with USB 2 ports. Others may have experience problems because of their use of USB 3 ports.

Cons: The cover can be easily lost.

1 out of 5 eggsDefective

Pros: USB 3.0

Cons: hangs on file copies. On some tries, Windows 7 says it failed to format the drive.

Other Thoughts: Returning it for a refund. Will look at other manufacturers for replacement.

5 out of 5 eggs64gb Version

Pros: Price, size, speed. Price was really great ($24.99) w/code. It formatted to about 60gb which is normal. I compared the speeds with another 32gb 3.0 flash drive of a different brand and they were very close. 64gb is a good size, holds 2 blu ray rips (BD-R 25gb) allowing me watch brays on another comp that has no bray drive which is connected to my 40in. 1080p television as its monitor.

Cons: Didn't like the color (powder blue) but that's really not a con in general.

Other Thoughts: I see some people with the 16gb version are having write speed problems but mine is absolutely fine. I don't know if that problem is specific to the 16gb version or I'm just lucky. Can't comment on reliability since I've only had it about a week but will write another review if it fails or has any other problems later on.

1 out of 5 eggsDefective Product

Pros: I thought it was a good price...

Cons: I bought 3 of these almost a year ago. The first one failed after 3 months of very light use. I started using the second one I bought at that point and it failed within a month or two of light use as well. Using with a HP/ASUS/Dell laptops running Win 7/8. I have many other USB sticks and have never had a issue with any other than these specific units. Many of the others are Patriot brand and all are dependable.

I am now using the third one, but don't dare keep anything that I can't easily replace on it, since I don't trust it at all.

Other Thoughts: This unit has a very high failure rate. Note that it is now "Not Available." I think it got discontinued because it is a lemon of a product. Tech support at Patriot has been a disappointment so far. I expected them to stand behind this product.

5 out of 5 eggsBest flash drive I have ever owned

Pros: Very fast, reliable. Use to watch movies on my LG TV. Transfer movies onto this drive, connect it to my TV, disconnect it, never a problem. I do not have to option on my TV to safely remove hardware, and have been watching movies with this for over a year now. Never any problems. Would gladly buy several more if they were not so expensive.

Cons: Too high of a price for right now.

1 out of 5 eggsbad, very bad...

Pros: none

Cons: I purchased this item and I was VERY disappointed.

The first one I got worked until I copied data to it and went to another computer - it then wouldn't load and I lost the data on the computer.

The second one shipped to me dead on arrival -- I couldn't even get it to load on a mac, pc or linux machine. I am very disappointed in this product.

I looked online to see what others were saying and it seems like this product in particular suffers from an issue where the drive inside becomes stuck in write protect mode where nothing can be added to the drive.
