4 out of 5 eggsBit $$$ for usb 2.0 but solid drive

Pros: I like that this USB drive does not get too hot when in the port for long. I usually transfer video files and move multiple gigs at a time. I did not care about write speed as much as read speed because I will be viewing the videos from the drive itself. Mac friendly and not loaded with junk like sandisk drives. No issues at all.

Cons: I wish it was priced a little lower since it is a 2.0 drive. Old tech.

5 out of 5 eggsPatriot ... Class Act!

Pros: Besides the device working great, reliable and fast...sorry no benchmarks I am beside myself with "the little things" this company is willing to do. In this case, lost the cap to my thumb drive as many of you might have and they sent me 2x replacements gratis!

Cons: none

1 out of 5 eggsDon't Buy it

Pros: 32 gig for a great price

Cons: Drive wiggled and failed after 8 months of use. My son was able to solder the connection, but even after that it became a 16 gig drive, wouldn't work in our playstation any more and after 1 month later it then lost all function. Now we have a great looking jump drive that is trash.

Other Thoughts: The rubber coating seemed like a good idea, but it was not firm enough to stop and bending or wiggling. I also hated that the cap wasn't connected... after a week it was missing.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

2 out of 5 eggsUNRELIABLE

Pros: Very fast.

Cons: USB plug separated from body less than two years into ownership. Thankfully I was able to retrieve data by wiggling the flash drive in the port.

Other Thoughts: High speed is USELESS if the unit falls apart, as mine did. I've had far better luck with Kingston and Corsair.

5 out of 5 eggsDurable and affordable

Pros: Light
Damage resistant
Portable
Reliable

Cons: Needs key chain attachment

Other Thoughts: I've had this for several years attached to my key chain and it hasn't fallen off since. After many formats, and boot from USB installations, this device has never failed me. Never had any bad sectors or problems for that matter. The only thing I would reccomend is to change the rubber key chain loop/hook to something more durable. Although mine has yet to break, this is the only weak point i've noticed with this otherwise wonderful product.

5 out of 5 eggsWashed and dried

Pros: Very fast for USB 2.0. Water and heat resistant! (see below)

Cons: I don't like drives with caps.

Other Thoughts: Just wanted to let everyone know -- I accidentally left this in the pocket of a pair of shorts when I threw them in the laundry. Washed them, dried them, and when they were done, the drive still works perfectly. It didn't even have the cap on! I'm pretty amazed.

3 out of 5 eggsShort Lived

Pros: - Good performance
- High capacity

Cons: - Died after less than 3 months

Other Thoughts: I thought it was great up until it died. I never even got to test the water resistance claims :(

3 out of 5 eggsDisappointed by the XT's early demise ... Pleased with Patriot's warranty support!

Pros: see prior review

Cons: see prior review

Other Thoughts: update to my review on 7/22/2012 2:43:57 AM: Patriot Memory replaced the Flash Drive quickly with another, with minimal requirements. Impressive ... hope this one lasts! =) Bumped to 3 eggs as a result of the excellent Customer Service.

4 out of 5 eggsVery FAST

Pros: I have had 2 of these since 2010 and they have been the fastest of all the flash drives I've used for writing data to them. After daily use for 2 years speed hasn't changed (until I broke it a few weeks ago - see Cons)

Cons: The rubber case can pick up lint in a pocket pretty easy and while it "feels" safe, there is not a hard plastic shell to protect the connector. I bumped mine while in a front USB slot and it easily bent and now doesn't work very well. So be careful bumping them if they are stuck out the front of a computer. In it's defence, others might have broke just as easily; but its the first time it's ever happend to me.

Other Thoughts: If you want a very fast flash drive for writing large amounts of data, this is hard to beat. I replaced it a couple weeks ago with a new 64GB generic brand. It's painfully slow writing to the new one compared to this one! Either this one just flies, or the other one is slow. I assumed that after 2 years that all flash drives are faster now - WRONG! Although I paid almost $80 2 years ago for this one and only $29 for a 64GB one last month; at the current price of $37.99 this one is still a bargin!

2 out of 5 eggsWorks well, breaks easily

Pros: This drive is extremely fast. I've hit 35MB/s with it, no sweat. Bogs down to *only* about 10MB/s when transferring many small files.
I've never filled this drive (although I've come close). 32GB is quite a lot of memory, you're unlikely to completely fill it

Cons: Breaks very easily. I've broken 2 at the connector, with no abuse whatsoever. I use it daily, and backup daily, but I would expect a drive like this to be more durable. Loses 3 eggs for this reason.

If you only need it occasionally, get it - it'll be fine. Warranty process seems to work fine. If you use it on a daily basis, however, try another one. Patriot is in general a good brand, so this drive is just a one-off.

Other Thoughts: I wrote an earlier review for this, I think it was 5 eggs. This was one week after getting it, it had not broken in that time.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear gjsmo,

I am sorry to hear that you experienced some performance issues with our flash drive. We'll be glad to assist you in resolving any issues you may have, including initiating the warranty process.

Thank You for choosing Patriot Memory

All of the Best,
