1 out of 5 eggsdrive full error

Pros: none

Cons: purchased 8/10; used 5 times before "drive full" message appeared when putting 9gb file onto drive.

Other Thoughts: first experience with patriot memory

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Please note that most of our drives come formatted in the Fat file system. If you are transferring files larger than 4GB in capacity, you will need to format the drive to NTFS as Fat has a limitation. Please refer to the how to below. For any further assistance, please feel free to e-mail me at: support@patriotmem.com.

Best Regards,
Benjamin

3 out of 5 eggsFast Drive but really cheap case

Pros: Really fast drive. Works on both PC and Mac.

Cons: The first drive lasted for about 8 months and the sliding tap lasted for about 1 week. Got RMA and got a new drive. Sliding tab broke off again. Really really cheap case.

Other Thoughts: Need to make the tab little bit more stable or just remove the sliding and put in the cap.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank You for leaving feedback regarding your Dash Drive. To ensure that the sliding tab does not break, please be sure that the tab is extended all the way out before plugging or removing your drive. As always, if you have any technical questions regarding your drive, please don't hesitate to contact support@patriotmem.com.

Thank You for choosing Patriot Memory!

Sincere Regards,
Patriot Memory Support

2 out of 5 eggsPoorly Designed, Cheap Materials, Quick Drive

Pros: The drive is pretty quick. 16GB has been a good enough amount of portable storage for me, with a few exception. Wasn't horribly expensive when I bought it several months ago.

Cons: I can't stress how much the casing sucks. The slider tab that exposes the USB connector doesn't lock in place half the time, so when you go to plug it in to a port, it ends up retracting the connector back in to the casing. The slider tab broke off under normal use within 2 months and made the thing darn near useless because it's almost impossible to slide the connector out without the tab. I've been having to use toothpicks and my car keys to get the thing to open. It's such a pain.

Other Thoughts: I'd really appreciate someone from Patriot contacting me to get this thing replaced, preferably with a model with a better designed casing...or the same. I am a Network Admin in a corporate office, and am constantly needing a reliable, fast, and easy-to-use flash drive.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ElliottRG,

We're sorry that you had issues with the housing mechanism. The drive is designed to lock once the extending connector is all the way out. Please don't hesitate to e-mail support@patriotmem.com to get your drive replaced under terms of warranty.

Kind Regards,
Patriot Memory Support

4 out of 5 eggsGreat but feels Cheap

Pros: Great driver for the price. Plenty of storage for your on the go stuff.

Cons: Plastic casing feels very cheap like I could crush this thing with my laptop bag. The button doesn't always snap into place so when I try to put the drive in my USB port the USB part slides back into the drive.

Other Thoughts: For 16GB this drive is the way to go. Just don't drop anything on it.

3 out of 5 eggsDeveloped bad blocks

Pros: Reasonably Fast.
Large capacity for a decent price.

Cons: Flimsy exterior. It feels like it will come apart.

Developed bad blocks after low to moderate use which won't go away even after full low-level format using Patriot's low-level format utility.

Other Thoughts: Patriot needs to put some logic in there which detects bad blocks and bypasses them for future access.

Not sure how much these drives are short stroked, but more headroom should be reserved so that once flash cells go bad, the blocks can be relocated transparently by the firmware.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Protective but Bad Slider

Pros: I been using it for a long time and it has always provide reliable. It always did the job. I accidently put it in the washing machine and drying machine (I washed it once and dried it twice by accident). It still worked after all of that abuse.

Cons: Slider broke but I can easily glue it back on. Could have been better design.

Other Thoughts: Don't hesitate to buy a flash memory drive from Patriot, just make sure it is water proof, shock proof, and the slider is good.
