5 out of 5 eggsCurrently the best I have used

Pros: Fast, reliable (so far), no problems at all.

Cons: While visually appealing, the way it retracts does little to prevent the USB connector from extruding again with minimal jostling of the drive whilst in a pocket.

Other Thoughts: I have had a number of flash drives fail: Verbatim, Corsair, and a few generics. This drive continues to perfectly, and is fast.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, durable flash drive.

Pros: The transfer speeds on this thing are as fast as advertised.

The sliding cover is the only thing that moves on the case so no worries of any inside components wearing because of movement.

Cons: The grip that holds the sliding cover has begun to wear. It still locks in place, just not as well as it used to.

Other Thoughts: I see this a lot on external storage devices where people complain that the transfer speeds are not as advertised after transferring a large amount of files. This is NORMAL on every single device.

If you transfer 5000 small files the transfer rate is always going to be slower on every external storage device than transferring a couple of files or one big file that is the same size of the 5000 small files added up.

This is because when you copy files it has to locate the data from where you are copying from, then copy over. It has to do these steps for each and every file you are transferring. So if you are copying 5000 files it has to do those steps 5000 times. Compared to only having to do it once for one big file of the same file size. Thus resulting in a faster transfer.

I just wish people would understand this so they will stop negatively rating an external storage device because of their own ignorance to this fact.

1 out of 5 eggsAwful

Pros: It's reasonably small, and the cover is kinda cool.

Cons: Its performance is TERRIBLE. It claims up to 25MB/s, I get something more like 5MB/s with awful latency.

I've tried with several different filesystems, with a variety of mount options.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I'm sorry to hear that you experienced some performance issues with our Rage Drive. Please note that the speeds are host-dependent. One thing we can recommend is to make sure that you have the updated drivers installed. Please send me an e-mail and I'll be glad to further assist you.

Thank you for choosing Patriot Memory!

Best Regards,
Jared

5 out of 5 eggsA flash drive from Valhalla

Pros: Very fast. Survived a load in the washing machine and still worked afterwards. You can't kill this thing.

Cons: Didn't scream for help when I put it in the washing machine. Not that it really needed any help.

Other Thoughts: This is my new master.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty fast........

Pros: Fast lil drive
Great price via NewEgg
It's Patriot....

Cons: None..... so far.

Other Thoughts: A little on the "fat" side making it tough to insert into laptop ports that are too close together in the first place! Not Patriot's fault.... these laptop manufacturers need to get a clue!

My Lenovo G530 not only has only 2 USB ports total, but they are so close together that two regular-sized USB connectors (IE: a mouse & standard USB cable) barely fit side-by-side! It's a bit ridiculous in this day and age since there was plenty of room to separate them, AND add two more elsewhere. Ugh! ;']

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Received the new drive, same problem

Found out what the problem was. It's Acronis and Patriot's fault. Read cons.

Cons: There is a conflict with Acronis daemon and the USB driver on the RAGE XT. This happens on Win7 x64 machines (have not tried on Win7 x86) with Acronis installed. I have Acronis 2010 and the drive would take 30+ seconds to detect, then asks me if I want to format the drive.

Uninstalled Acronis, problem gone, but there is still a slight 1-2 second delay to detect the drive, not instantaneous like my Patriot SuperSonic 32GB 3.0, but still better than waiting 30+ seconds.

Other Thoughts: You can say there's a problem with Patriot or there's a problem with Acronis, but I'm going to point the finger at Patriot. There's something Patriot added, removed or change with the RAGE XT that's causing this problem on Win7 x64 machines with Acronis installed. I have their SuperSonic 32GB USB 3.0 and that drive does nto have this problem.

I do not have this problem with all my other USB flash drives ranging from 1GB - 32GB.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: None, DOA

Cons: Everytime I insert the drive it gives me Event ID 11 errors and asking me to "format before use". Tried regular format and quick format, problem persists. Will RMA.

Other Thoughts: First time experiencing problems with a flash drive, guess there's a first time for everything.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I'm sorry to hear that you've experienced some format issues with our Rage Drive. Please don't hesitate to send me an e-mail and I'll be glad to look into the issue.

Thank you for choosing Patriot Memory!

2 out of 5 eggsGreat while it lasted

Pros: Fast, 16GB

Cons: Died. Keeps giving disk controller error and asking to re-initialize. Probably too late to replace.

Other Thoughts: Lenovo T510/W7 64b

Manufacturer Response:

Dear iggster,

I'm sorry to hear that you've experienced some issues with your 16GB Rage Drive. Furthermore, these drives carry a 5 year warranty. Please don't hesitate to send me an e-mail and I'll be glad to address the issue.
