2 out of 5 eggsSpotty

Pros: Good when it works.

Cons: Most of the time my system wouldn't recognize the device.

Other Thoughts: Sometimes it would work. Most of the time it wouldn't. I still have it. Can't seem to give it away.

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsCorrupted data after 6 weeks

Pros: -Rubber casing seems like it could take some abuse
-Data transfers were quick

Cons: -Unrecoverable data, and corrupted data after about 6 weeks of moderate to high use.

I used this drive as a go-between for several systems, and I began to receive corruption errors on data that had been transferred. This degraded to a point of not even being able to restore any files that were saved on the drive.

Thankfully no critical data that hadn't been backed up already was stored on this drive.

Other Thoughts: Normally I'd bother going through with an RMA to replace a bad unit, but I couldn't trust a replacement unit with this poor of a first-time experience.

First and last attempt with Patriot products, which is a shame since they seem to have some solid reviews and decent prices on other items.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for choosing Patriot Memory.

4 out of 5 eggsSturdy

Pros: Very sturdy
Never had a problem with PC reading

Cons: Uh my 2 year old broke it

Other Thoughts: Very solid USB Drive. Lasted me about 2 years before my toddler yanked and bent the pins effectively severing the connector from the actual USB.

I'm going to buy a new one (8GB)

3 out of 5 eggsOK. But by no means robust

Pros: Relatively good performance. Rubber overmoulded shell case is nicer than most other housings.

Cons: Speeds are not quite as high as advertised in most cases. Not really water resistant, I would say the product is IP42 at best.

Other Thoughts: This product is better than most USB flash drives, but the casing while neat is not as robust as you might think. The rubber overmoulded cover goes over a clamshell plastic case that houses the PCB. The PCB is not even conformal coated which I would of expected from a water resistant product. But then again, for the price its expected I suppose. I just wish it was either encapsulated or protected from water to some extent.
