5 out of 5 eggsIntial Review

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Magnum 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF128GSMNUSB

Pros: I have owned the 64 GB Magnum for 2 + years with 0 issues. I am anticipating the same satisfaction with the 128GB one. I will test and update my review when it arrives.

Cons: None at this time. I see a lot of people are complaining about the "size" of the drive. ALL MAGNUMS ARE LARGE IN SIZE! Yes it usually will cover up 2 USB ports depending on your MB/Case configuration. Is the size of the unit a deal breaker?---absolutely not. I also see people complaining about the cap. I throw mine away when I get them. If your biggest complaint is "the cap is loose" you don't need a 128 GB thumb drive you need a baby bottle so you will stop whining! Buy a thumb for the specs not the cap!

Other Thoughts: As I said earlier I will thoroughly test the unit when I get it and update my review. I'm sure I won't be disappointed.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great! A little big, though

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Magnum 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF128GSMNUSB

Pros: Love 128GB on-the-go.
Transfer rates are consistent between 80-130MB per second depending on the file (copying from an SSD).
I've transferred about 400GB on and off the device already with no issues.

Cons: It's quite wide. I am sure some of the reason is to "show off", but if you need space between other USB ports, it might be an issue. I don't have that, so I can't really complain too much.

5 out of 5 eggsFast Yes, Big Yes

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Magnum 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF128GSMNUSB

Pros: I've had my Patriot Magnum 64gb for about a year now. Never had an issue. Only reason I'm writing this post is because of people complaining about the size. Do yourself a favor: While buying this thumb drive also buy a USB 3.0 extension cable. Mine is about 18" long and allows me to use the USB 3.0 jack that would normally be blocked on the laptop due to the thumb drive's size.

Cons: Zero

3 out of 5 eggsCorrupt files

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Magnum 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF128GSMNUSB

Pros: I owned several 64gb Patriot flash drives, they have been great for speed.
I used them to backup weekly.

Cons: I purchased Patriot Magnum 128gb about 8 months, it works great till recently I experience corrupts and missing files. I used Patriot repair tool and work about a week but now corrupts file again.
My other 64gb Patriot flash drive without any issue, not sure the this 128gb is defected.

2 out of 5 eggsGood but poor build quality

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Magnum 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF128GSMNUSB

Pros: Fast (big step up from the 2.0 world)

Cons: Bulky form factor and poor build quality. The entire external housing came loose after a couple months of normal use and shortly after, the usb connector has started to separate from the memory board. It now requires delicate placement to get all of the pins to properly connect and due to its bulky size, this can hog all of the space around a usb port.

4 out of 5 eggsBulky but Powerful

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Magnum 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF128GSMNUSB

Pros: As fast as it says on the tin. I use it as a poor man's SSD with a games and a cache loaded on it with very noticable improvements on load times.

Cons: It's big, specifically wide. It will block adjacent ports if your usb is arranged horizontally. It's not a problem for me because I use a hub with an extension port, but something to keep in mind.

Other Thoughts: I bought this thing with a specific purpose in mind and mindful of the limitations, and it delivers, but unless you plan on running applications or loading a linux distro on it, there are more cost-efficient sticks out there for plain usb storage.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat so far

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Magnum 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF128GSMNUSB

Pros: Fast, fast and did I mention fast? Thing is great. Speed is such a big player with larger flash drives. Worth the money.

Cons: None

2 out of 5 eggsA Dream, Squashed

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Magnum 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF128GSMNUSB

Pros: A good amount of space

Cons: Less than desirable build quality

Other Thoughts: All I have to say is that the little blue thing on the inside kind of broke off and now the top doesn't actually click on the entire way. For the 130 I spent on this, I would expect something a little better designed. Pretty sad. Will avoid Patriot if this can't get fixed

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsExceptionally Good.

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Magnum 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF128GSMNUSB

Pros: It is very fast and reliable. I get right around 90-110 sustained write speeds with my Asus Crosshair Formula motherboard. Basically I can copy a 20GB folder with 2,200 files of all size and formats to the drive just under 5 minutes.

Cons: Bulky but it does not block adjacent USB port access since it's not thick. I am not a big fan of the cap design I wish they could do a retractable design like SanDisk. Other than there's nothing to complain.

Other Thoughts: Buy it... you won't regret it.

4 out of 5 eggsVery good with a few nags

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Magnum 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF128GSMNUSB

Pros: Does what it is suppose to. Read/write speed is near advertised. Of course your computer storage system has to have the throughput to utilize the speed of the flash drive. No trouble getting 3.0 speeds on a W8 Surface Pro (unlike Corsair 3.0 flash drives).

Cons: No LED light. Since you don't know when data is being transferred, be sure to use the Safely Remove Hardware icon in the tray to eject the device to avoid any data corruption. This is a good idea with any flash drive.
The cap does not fit tightly and therefore is easy to come off. These two issues would have been easy to fix. You have to wonder who designs stuff like this.

Other Thoughts: Aside from a few nags, this is a good drive. I also have a Corsair Voyager GT 3.0 which will not work on my Surface Pro. Corsair did not follow today's 3.0 USB standard and MS/Intel are unwilling to do anything about it.
Newegg was once again fast with the shipping. Kudos.
