5 out of 5 eggsWon't die

Pros: I've had one of these for years. It has gone through the washer on more than one occasion when I forget to empty my pockets. It's been steeped on, dropped....and to this day, it still works as good as it did when i bought it. Never have had a single problem with it, even after all of the accidental abuse I've put it through. After going through hot water cycles in the washer while in my jean pockets...(3 times over the years...you'd think I'd learn), and firing up without a hiccup or a single damaged file, I can't complain about this drive at all. It's like the Honda of USB sticks, it just keeps running.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsPatriot Xporter XT Boost 8GB Flash Drive (USB 2.0 Portable) Model PEF8GUSB

Pros: Still working at 100%... one of the Best USB jump drives I have ever owned. This is a durable, shock resistant covered drive with plenty of benefits and loads of life for a lasting and reliable product. Read and write speeds are as advertised- except when loaded down with heavy data, but that's like any other hard drive.

Cons: not one...

Other Thoughts: I have the Black & Blue 16GB version also (recent purchase -Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF16GSBUSB) and it now holds right at 14GB's of data and has been performing just as smooth as this one does. The 8GB drive is now my W7 OS loader- aids installs of the x64 Ult. ver. in less than 5 min's.

Highly recommend as a reliable and sturdy aux. boost memory or hard drive.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product

Pros: I've owned two of these 8GBs since 2008. I've used them and filled them many many times. They've stood up to a beating and never had any data issues. While they're not slow the transfer rate isn't insane in today's standards, but they are older (USB2). I would highly recommend these to anybody. 6 years and they're still going strong!

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsGreat while it lasted

Pros: I appreciated the rubberized construction. It made it comfortable to grip. It was also designed to be used with Ready Boost technology, which was all the rage when Windows Vista came out.

Cons: It got unsoldered after a few years of use. Towards the end, I had to push it up when it was in the USB port. My attempt to resolder it was unsuccessful. It's a good thing that I backed it up before doing so.

Other Thoughts: Back up your thumb drives regularly. What happened to me can be common. Or, sometimes, thumb drives just stop working.
