5 out of 5 eggsMicro Metal and 32GB

Pros: Very Small Form Factor. Edges rounded so it does not catch on much when moving it around while it is still in the port. The case is a fairly heavy duty one-piece metal. This tiny drive is 32GB!! Nudge-nudge, hint-hint, say-no-more, say-no-more.

Cons: The eyelet or key loop feels heavy duty, but I worry that it is made of pot metal and will eventually break off if I drop it. Only time will tell.

Other Thoughts: This drive is a bit slow when compared to standard USB2.0 thumb drives. But it is much faster than all other drives of similar form factors.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks, but not for what was intended

Pros: High capacity in a very small size. Very sturdy and feels well made. A great "plug in and leave alone" drive where removal of the drive is not all that frequent.

Cons: Quite a bit slower than my Patriot Xporter 2.0 (comes with the territory of these small form factor drives), and is difficult to remove from all usb slots.

Other Thoughts: I intended to use this drive in my 2012 Chevy Malibu but the radio refuses to recognize the drive. Not a fault of the drive but the radio (only 1 out of my 6 drives works in the factory usb). I ended up putting the drive in my Xbox 360 (old stye Halo 3 special edition) and it meets the specs, so thats its new home and its doing a great job. I will add that if you plan on removing the drive often, DO NOT put it in a difficult to reach place. Let the thought of "will I be able to get pliers in there" run through your mind before inserting it into one of those slots. I used a usb extension in my front usb ports on my xbox along with this drive for fear of not being able to get it back out.

3 out of 5 eggsTiny, but worried about reliability

Pros: Tiny, decent capacity.

Cons: Dead after 1 week.

USB 2.0, EXTREMELY SLOW WRITE SPEED. Between 7 MB/s and low of 2 MB/s. Runs hot.

Other Thoughts: Doesn't sit flush with the computer, it protrudes just over 1/4" from the chassis. This can be good for removal, but it is not a perfect solution for permanent HD expansion. I think other manufacturers make flush mount models. However, being a rounded shape prevents snags, and it's low profile prevent me from disliking it's design.

I have had very good luck with Patriot's reliability and performance. The Patriot ExporterXT are phenomenal drives, and I expected similar results with this thing. However, the write speeds are extremely disappointing. I suppose this is the compromise with a small form factor. I specifically wanted to use this drive as an always connected expansion drive to my SSD limited capacity ultrabook. It worked, for 1 week. Luckily I only copied non-critical data to it (cache files and such), but still I have to reload that data from backup and put it back on the local HD.
