4 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Patriot 16GB Tab Flash Drive Model PSF16GTAB3USB

Pros: The small size allow these USB drives to be installed inside 1U computer cases directly on the motherboard of servers.

Cons: I purchased 2, 1 was DOA.

Other Thoughts: Bad news - I had to pay shipping to return the USB drive to patriot for exchange/repair. Good news - they exchanged my 16 GB drive with a 32 GB drive.

1 out of 5 eggsDead day 1

This review is from: Patriot 16GB Tab Flash Drive Model PSF16GTAB3USB

Pros: Seemed fast for the hour it worked

Cons: After around an hour, the device stopped functioning entirely. Have tried multiple computers, and it does not appear at all. This includes using lsusb and gparted to look for either the partitions or the device. Have not found a way to make it work again.

4 out of 5 eggsPerfect size

This review is from: Patriot 16GB Tab Flash Drive Model PSF16GTAB3USB

Pros: Small size, durable metal housing with read speeds in the 120mb/s on USB 3.0

Cons: Slow write speeds. Averaged 10 to 12 mb/s across the enter file size range.

Other Thoughts: Fast write speeds would make this a must have drive.

1 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Patriot 16GB Tab Flash Drive Model PSF16GTAB3USB

Pros: looks solid and looks good

Cons: does not last that long. i got 2 of these 16gb tabs both died after a couple of months. i used both every day for backup of files on 2 different computers. manufacturer's warranty took care of the replacement. at this point, i am very wary of relying on it for backup -- more like useless to me because that is precisely why i got it.

4 out of 5 eggsBetter Luck, Follow up to Worst Luck.

This review is from: Patriot 16GB Tab Flash Drive Model PSF16GTAB3USB

Pros: Small. Fast. Great price on Shell Shocker.

Cons: Small, easy to lose. Too pricey when not on sale.
Had to update the firmware after being stuck in "read only" mode for a couple of weeks.
This is the reason for only 4 stars.

Other Thoughts: Good tech support, right here in the USA.

2 out of 5 eggsWorst luck

This review is from: Patriot 16GB Tab Flash Drive Model PSF16GTAB3USB

Pros: small, fast read

Cons: Something is broken somewhere. This is stuck in "read only" mode and won't allow writes to this memory stick.

Other Thoughts: Tried my best to break the "read only attribute on this drive. It's only 2 months old and I broke another flash drive. I hope I can get it replaced under warranty.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage drive failed with in a week

This review is from: Patriot 16GB Tab Flash Drive Model PSF16GTAB3USB

Pros: NONE

Cons: My First drive I got failed on the second day of use, simple was not recognized by the PC, I sent it back and got a replacement.

After a few more days using the replacement drive its now unmountable and is locked in write protect mode. I have requested a refund instead of trying my luck with a third drive.

(FYI, I am a sysadmin and tried everything with both drives to get them to work no luck)

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

Sorry to hear that you've had some continued issues with the TAB drive. Please e-mail me: support@patriotmem.com and we have a firmware flash that will resolve this issue.

Regards,

4 out of 5 eggsSleek USB3 drive, fast read, slow write

This review is from: Patriot 16GB Tab Flash Drive Model PSF16GTAB3USB

Pros: This is a very small, durable, light and sleek drive, the only usb3 drive like this I could find. Read speed is pretty good at 30MB/s on USB2, and blazing up to 145MB/s on USB3.

Cons: Write speed is pretty slow relative to read speed (8-10MB/s)

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive hoping that is would be a speedy and small drive for my keychain, it does the job fine but seems to be very similar in write performance to cheaper drives like the Kingston DataTraveler and the Team C125.

I was hoping that the write speed would be faster since the read speed was so fast, I had trouble funding what the read speed was when I bought it.

Also, the opening on the drive is too small for a key ring, you'll have to add a lanyard to make work.
