5 out of 5 eggsgreat little usb

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF16GSBUSB

Pros: This is my favorite flash usb ive used thus far.
Compared to my
2.0 pny 128gb. 11Mb/s
3.0 pny 64gb. 29 mb/s

My patriot avgs 49 to 55 mb/s write speed

Cons: Its only 16 gb (joke)

Other Thoughts: The build quality is neat, and durable. The red light is the coolest activity light imo. It blinks when being read or writing, however maybe not everyone will like it but its like a cpu activity lightas opposed to a constant on indicator.

5 out of 5 eggsReally decent USB 3 drive!

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF16GSBUSB

Pros: Caught a sale/rebate combo.
USB 3.0 connection speed.
Rubberized shell.
Useful capacity.

Cons: I haven't run into any yet.

Other Thoughts: Used it to test out the USB 3.0 ports on my most recently built system. Much faster transfer than USB 2.0. No compatibility problems. It seems like this model and the 32GB one are always on sale. Grab one of these before they go back up to full price!

5 out of 5 eggsPatriot Supersonic Boost XT 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF16GSBUSB

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF16GSBUSB

Pros: Perfect!!! Made a W-10 Tech. Preview x64 OS Boot Drive on this and didn't have to format it... just loaded from .iso file through UltraISO- select 'Bootable' and 'Write Disk Image', make sure the proper drive has been selected and select Burn. Loaded the 4GB OS to my Sabertooth in about 5 minutes. Perfect!

Cons: Didn't come with the spare cap I asked for about 2-3 yrs. ago...

Other Thoughts: I have the Black & Red 8GB USB drive from Patriot and the cap fell off about 3 months after I received it. My fault... ...thanks anyway.

Highly recommend these Patriot USB Drives to anyone in need of auxilliary (Boost) memory, space or jump/transfer drives.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Pleased

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF16GSBUSB

Pros: Tough and rugged, and also water resistant. Very solid feeling.

Opening at the top to put a string through.

Very fast USB 3.0 connection, Windows 8 installed in five minutes.

AWESOME price.

Cons: About 0.5GB of mysteriously used space, gone after a format.

3 out of 5 eggsProblems with Patriot rebate

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF16GSBUSB

Pros: Solid drive.

Cons: Having problem with Patriot rebate. Poor Patriot Customer Service (see Other thoughts).

Other Thoughts: Submitted rebate form on time and with all that was requested per Patriot form on their web page. Received an email from Patriot Customer Service that they declined my request with explanation that purchase date was outside of the offer timeframe (which was not) and that I need to submit copy of Receipt/Invoice now (which was not originally requested). Replied to them with facts, ... awaiting their response. What a hassle !!

5 out of 5 eggsAs Expected

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF16GSBUSB

Pros: First 3.0 USB Stick I've owned. Noticeable difference from 2.0 and worth the price. Nice rubber coating and cap. Feels high quality. By far the best USB I have every bought.

Cons: None that I could think of.

Other Thoughts: I use this USB to put my OS Install on. Much faster than a 2.0 USB Drive (of course, when used in a 3.0 port).

5 out of 5 eggsIndestructable!!!

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF16GSBUSB

Pros: Rugged rubber casing, FAST usb 3.0

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: I love this usb stick...It has a thick rubber coating, so if you drop it, it will not break. Good usb 3.0 speed if you have an external slot. Also works in a regular usb slot. Great Stick!

5 out of 5 eggsGood drive, but slower write speed than advertised

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF16GSBUSB

Pros: It is very durable with the rubber jacket, it will bounce if you drop it.
The read speed is very high, I got 110MB/s while transferring a large file.
I had no problems accessing it on any of my Linux computers.

Cons: It blocks the adjacent usb port on some computers.
The write speed maxes out at 18MB/s, not the 30MB/s advertised. I got it really cheap on sale though, so I won't complain too much about that.

Other Thoughts: This is my second drive from patriot, I have had the last one for 5 years and it still works. I hope this one will last that long.
