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.

5 out of 5 eggsPatriot XT 16GB

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

Pros: *Full Rubber Enclosure
*USB 3.0

Great little USB drive with 14.7GB useable space. Fast and dependable. I personally tend to use USB Flash Drives for keeping back-ups of downloaded files, drivers and those smaller files that I want to delete but am not sure I want gone forever yet. So the size of these drives works great for my use.

Cons: I have no cons for this product!

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't hesitate to purchase a larger capacity version of the Patriot Supersonic XT 3.0 USB drive if the need comes up. I've been using the (2) I have now between (4) computers and have had no issues at all.

3 out of 5 eggsGlue is weak

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

Pros: Always great speed!

Cons: It pulled out of its case after a few uses
I already submitted an RMA with Patriot

Other Thoughts: I give it three eggs because the other Patriot sticks that I own and use daily, work so well

1 out of 5 eggsDrive not recognized on Window 7 PCs

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

Pros: Affordable USB 3.0 drive

Cons: Drive is not recognized by PCs. I've tried using the drive on several Windows 7 PCs - majority of which do not recognize the drive. I'm propomted with a message that the drive needs to be formatted. Yet, I continue to receive the same message after it's been formatted. I've even used the Patriot low-level format tool. Overall, this has been a real pain. First time purchasing a patriot USB drive and likely will be the last.

Other Thoughts: Started the RMA process... hopefully that goes smooth.

5 out of 5 eggsHave the 2.0 XT version, but closest thing to it

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

Pros: Durable as anything. I have owned the USB 2.0 version for 2 years. I use it for large college files and a back up of a back up for our wedding picks and videos from racing cars. I just washed this 2 year old drive in a clothes a washer in hot water extra rinse, dried it in a bag of rice, and it works like a champ! Are you kidding me! Patriot has me for life! Durable!

Cons: Not a freaking thing

Other Thoughts: I was always worried about the longevity of flash drives ,but now I am a believer of Patriot. I know I have the 2.0 version, but how different could they make the same drive? I own the the Patriot XT 16 GB 2.0. If it were still for sale I would have posted this there. I will be buying the 3.0 version soon in 32 GB. I'm just saying Patriot makes this very same product in a 2.0 version that surpassed my expectations. When my wife told me she washed it in our front load, I thought it was dead for sure. It got washed on the worst sanitizing cycle you could imagine, and made it through the other other side.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Satisfied

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

Pros: Fast, affordable, rubber enclosure

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I am not sure how the read/write speed compares to other rives in real world usage, but this drive has performed flawlessly at much faster speeds than my USB2 drives. At the price, I am very happy.
