1 out of 5 eggsFollowup review

Pros: Fairly speedy, small, cheap.

Cons: Died after about 4 months of light use. Plastic housing for a drive this small is a poor design choice in my opinion.

Other Thoughts: Could be that I just got a dud. I've bought many Patriot flash drives before and none of them have failed on me yet, except for this one.

Bought a Patriot Swing 4gb at the same time as this one and it still works great.

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggsSurvived the Washing Machine

Pros: It survived a washing Machine and Dryer. It looks very nice, you might say classy, and it is very small. I never checked the speed.

Cons: The memory portion came out of the holder/case in the dryer. I glued it back in, and it still works in my laptop

Other Thoughts: I would buy this again. My son forgets it in his pocket frequently. The rubber case is is nice, but it doesn't fit on very well when you are using a leash through the clip.

2 out of 5 eggsNot So Hot!

Pros: Small and inexpensive

Cons: Doesn't work as expected.

Other Thoughts: My computer sees this as RAW format and then wants me to reformat. When I try to format it the operation fails at about 98% progress. I'm at a loss. Works fine in my laptop running W7 Pro, but not in my desktop running the same.
Wish I had an explanation.

2 out of 5 eggsOut-of-Box Fail

Pros: None that can be spoken of for this particular model. However, I also have the 8GB version of this and it has survived a few months now in my wallet, and has good read and write speeds. Since that version works so well I get the feeling that is just ended up on the bad end of the Quality Control spectrum with this drive.

Casing is durable. It is made up of what seems to be a PVC type plastic. I would not prefer metal to minimize the chance of conducting static to internal component-a reality with this super small form factor since insulation would make it fat.
Has a great aesthetic appeal, but anyone can tell that from the pictures.

Comes with a rubber casing to keep drive in and protect the usb contact areas from moisture, static, and wear. I am using the casing for another drive so the purchase hasn't been useless.

Cons: Quality Control. My unit is DOA. I have plugged it into Windows, Linux and Mac OSX computers only to experience the same results.

After a short duration of time, the drive powers down and the OS perceives this as the drive having been physically ejected. I have managed to reformat the drive before it powered down, but the issue seems mechanical/electrical in nature so that hasn't helped.

I would not say that this drive should never be purchased by a discerning consumer, but be wary of what you may be getting. You may want to look elsewhere first.

Other Thoughts: Patriot is a good brand so despite this particular drive of mine's fault I will still purchase flash drives from them among other things.

4 out of 5 eggsGood flash drive

Pros: Very small, comes with a snug-fiting silicone sheath.

Cons: Plastic casing. Was hoping it would be aluminum.

Other Thoughts: Would have recieved 5 stars if the casing was made of metal instead of plastic. Other than that, it's a good drive.
