4 out of 5 eggsReview of Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 16GB USB 3.0

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

Pros: They work. I bought 2 of them to do system recovery drives. Real world transfers were 60/20 so not bad. I like the price, the case and the girl in the video.

Cons: For me there are none. They are cheap and I got more than I paid for.

Other Thoughts: I reformatted these to NTFS which was a little bit faster on the writes and reads.

5 out of 5 eggsA Great Performing Drive

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

Pros: USB 3.0 brings with it incredibly fast speeds
Waterproof casing means all the washer mishaps without wondering if your drive is dead!

Cons: The waterproof cap for the plug itself is easy to lose, and I indeed lost it.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent Value

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

Pros: Purchased this for college use, in order to store documents and files from classes. The 16gb of space is plentiful.

Rubber provides good grip.

Cons: 2-piece component. This is not a one piece flash drive. The cap is awfully tiny so you must be sure to store the cap somewhere safe when the USB is in use. Otherwise, you may lose it!

Since the flash drive is housed in rubber, the rubber picks up a lot of lint.

Other Thoughts: Honestly wish I had more to say. It's a USB flash drive. You use it for simple and small files and documents. If 16gb STILL isn't enough, get a larger capacity one.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad

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

Pros: Nice high quality rubber coating and cap

Cons: Not a capless design, so don't lose that cap!

Other Thoughts: I also have the 32GB version (model PEF32GSBUSB) and the write speeds on this seem much slower, even though they're both USB 3.0.
On this drive, I usually get 35-45 MB/sec write speeds, where I get 105-115 MB/sec on the 32G model.

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.
