5 out of 5 eggsGreat Flash Drive

Pros: *Flash drive is of very high quality.
*Rubber coating makes this flash drive virtually water proof.
*Size is ultra small, making drive light weight and compact
*Keyring hole makes flash drive portable
*Flash drive securely keeps data (music, image, video, and other data files) safe from loss and damage.

Cons: *Flash drive is not capless, and has no place to snap it on to the rear of the drive, making it easily losable

Other Thoughts: This Patriot flash drive would be very sellable in a wider variety of storage sizes.

2 out of 5 eggsDecent drive marred by "low price, high shipping" scammishness

Pros: High storage, decent speed

Cons: Shipping cost - no cheaper than other similar drives; they con you with a low "sales" price and slap you with a ridiculous shipping fee

2 out of 5 eggsSlow,

Pros: Soft rubbery jacket, it works and stores files

Cons: It is slow. the fastest write speed i got was almost 3MB/s. The read speed is better, but still slow. Eventually the rubber jackets just slips off from both sides.

Other Thoughts: I got purchase several of these for my computer service company. they are attractive, small and bright.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good Thumb Drive

Pros: Small size with silicone-rubber case. No damage being dropped from 3 feet onto concrete. Device speed acceptable for casual data backup. 8Gb is OK memory size here.

Cons: Keep away from small children, choking hazard. Not worth score reduction, just a friendly reminder.

Other Thoughts: I've had this drive for two years. Speedy enough, and worth every penny if dropped (of course it might take crazy bounces, though). Does its job of data backup well having no problems. Initial very tight fit relaxes with use. Possible use as Linux OS drive.

1 out of 5 eggsSmall, soft, rubberish, but SLOW

Pros: Small, nice color, cheap, LED on the drive to show activity

Cons: It's really slow. Moving a file over the drive gets an average speed of 4MB/s. I was using a dock earlier and that got at least 20MB/s.

Other Thoughts: Buy it if it's REALLY cheap only

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: size and price

Cons: having to pay shipping to get repaired / replaced

Other Thoughts: I purchased 2 of these drives 5/28/2012. Both drives failed. Worked with tech support they wanted me to return the drive at my cost. I never had this many problems with any other brand drive. Purchased 2 new Kingston drives. No problems with the new Kingston drives.

1 out of 5 eggsSlowest Flash Drive I've Owned

Pros: Small. Perfect size/shape for a dedicated server OS that rarely gets removed.

Cons: Painfully slow.

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive with the idea that it would be faster than some old USB Flash Drives I have lying around. But, it has turned out to be the slowest of them all. Also freezes sometimes while booting very light-weight NAS OS.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Product

Pros: Least costly hard drive on Newegg
Very impressive for price

Cons: Silicone casing does pull right off

Other Thoughts: It would be nice if the casing was glued on or fastened somehow to the metal flash drive but it wasn't just falling off. You actually have to fiddle with it to cause it to come off completely.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Durable

Pros: Rubber Casing seems to protect the data extremely well
Small size makes for easy storage
Hole for tying drive to lanyard or some other string to avoid losing it

Cons: Rubber cap is really fun to mess with and i'm afraid it might break before the drive does
Cap can't be placed on the backside of the flashdrive, at least, not without stretching the rubber cap.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my mother, who teaches English as a second language, and uses it to carry her documents and other stuff. I am the first person she comes to when she has issues, and I have not heard a single complaint about the drive, which means it is working great.

5 out of 5 eggsWashing instructions

Pros: Machine warm warm. High spin speed. Tumble dry low heat for one hour. It still works!! And has the data on it and whatnot.

Cons: The rubber is a bit too grippy in my pocket. I know I'm going to lose the cap sooner or later; it's inevitable.
