5 out of 5 eggsflash drive

Pros: I love this flash drive. It is the best one I ever had. I feel it is built rugged and it is 1000 times better then any Sandisk.it might be expensive but your playing for the quality

Cons: I only have very few cons for this product. You might want to paint the end caps
Because there is no landyard for the end black caps They can be easily miss placed can and probably wind up missing. In my option a real stupid over sight on there part on Patroit's end. but you can make the land yard your self

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic flash drive!

Pros: Outstanding performance and durability. Still my favorite flash drive even though the size is less impressive than it once was. Has done duty as a Xbox 360 drive in the past without issue.

Cons: None, this drive may have cost a little more than its competitors back when I bought it but the difference was worth every penny.

Other Thoughts: I've asked this flash drive to handle just about every task conceivable over the years and it has yet to fail me. One of my favorite tech purchases.

5 out of 5 eggsDurable

Pros: +Good capacity
+Watertight

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: I accidentally dropped this thing in a puddle during a heavy downpour in the summer of 2012. I didn't realize it until I got to my car and went back to retrieve it. When I got it home, I dried it off and it is still working today.

5 out of 5 eggsJust have to say...

Pros: These things are nothing short of bulletproof, it's astounding the amount of abuse they can stand up to.

Cons: Seriously, not one.

Other Thoughts: Why I'm writing a review 3 years later...

I have a few of these; a couple years back, one went missing. I found it in my yard after the snow had melted, it must have fallen out of my pocket while clearing the driveway weeks before. I dried it in a bag of rice, and it fired right up.

My 3yo got ahold of the same unit a couple weeks back, and it came back coated in what I can only assume is maple syrup. I ran it through the washing machine, let it dry and... of course, it fired right up. Amazing little bits.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Jump Drive I've ever owned

Pros: Solid & durable, cap stays on Very Well.... and it reads and writes Fast! I have owned this 8GB flash drive since just after it became available here on Newegg... Jan. 2008 & it has been very reliable for only 8 gigs. Recognized by Every PC I plug it into... Every One. No wonder the price has yet to drop in over 5 yrs.

Keep up the good work, Patriot!

Cons: Not One Thing. Price is worth every penny.

Other Thoughts: I could sure use a Solid, durable and equally Reliable 32GB from Patriot... as long as it has the same beefy build and read/write speeds... or Better...?

Cons: -Is pretty big

5 out of 5 eggsDurable and reliable

Pros: Works great! It's a very durable USB drive with a thick rubber like covering making it durable. I dropped it from 6ft couple times to test its durability and it is awesome! Works every time!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Not waterproof, but If it was I guess I would be paying a pretty dollar for that.
