4 out of 5 eggsIt's a USB stick!

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Xpress 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PSF8GXPUSB

Pros: Very, very fast on USB 3.0.
Amazingly cool, pop/click mechanism
Compatible with USB 2.0

Cons: Slow USB 2.0 speeds, slower than my large pile of USB keys on average...8MB/s write speed.

1 out of 5 eggsI've give these a goose egg if I could

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Xpress 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PSF8GXPUSB

Pros: Cheap, decent speed

Cons: The reliability of these drives is the absolute pits. I ordered two of them at the same time with the intention of having them be an OS drive for my NAS (with a spare, just in case).

I ordered and received these drives in January. The first one failed by April with bad sectors. Patriot's "diagnostic" utility is only a low-level format of the drive. It doesn't actually test to see if the memory or controller are still any good. I switched to the spare drive and tossed the failing one in a drawer. Today, the second one died just five months later. No matter what I do, it produces bad sectors every time I drop a FreeNAS image on it.

Other Thoughts: Patriot may have a decent reputation in RAM, but this flash memory is definitely not up-to-par, at least not for always-on applications. Caveat emptor!

4 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Xpress 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PSF8GXPUSB

Pros: This is overall a good flash drive. The capacity is a bit modest yet reasonable (for my needs) and the transfer speeds are usually close to the 20MB/s that is advertised.

Cons: The clicking mechanism was so cool that I played with it too much and it broke. It was like those clicky pens except in a flash drive. The drive is still as usable as it was before, but it doesn't stay in the open position which isn't really a big deal to me. It still does its job just fine.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks...but rebate is a joke

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Xpress 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PSF8GXPUSB

Pros: It works as a flash drive.

Cons: The rebate process is a joke. I bought this back in December 2012. Submitted the rebate and according to the rebate form, it takes 8-12 weeks for the rebate to arrive. Well...my rebate was approved on Feb. 22, 2013 but it's now April and there's still no rebate. I called into the toll-free number on the rebate and was informed that it takes 8-12 weeks from the rebate approval date for the rebate. So that means it could take 1/2 a year for a $5 rebate. What a joke!

Other Thoughts: I think Patriot Memory is hoping that by delaying the rebate, they think consumers will eventually forget it and therefore will not have to mail it. I will think long and hard next time before buying anything from Patriot Memory.

2 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work with FL1000 controller

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Xpress 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PSF8GXPUSB

Pros: Works as USB 2 drive

Cons: Never recognized by my Fresco Logic FL1000 controller, WD My Passport USB 3 HDD works fine with it. Works in USB 2.0 slot, but defeats the purpose of buying USB 3.0 flash drive.
Silly ballpoint-pen click-to-extend style retractor is unnecessarily complex and makes insertion more difficult, also seems a likely point of early failure.

3 out of 5 eggsDon't get excited

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Xpress 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PSF8GXPUSB

Pros: cheap; ~50% faster usb3 read than usb2 for smaller block sizes.

Cons: usb3 write speeds about the same as usb2

Other Thoughts: Write speeds are about the same on usb3 as usb2. Read speeds are about 50% faster on usb3. I tested with HD Bench using 2, 10, and 100MB block sizes. The columns from left to right are read, write, random read, random write.

2 out of 5 eggsHalf of the claimed speed

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Xpress 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PSF8GXPUSB

Pros: It works

Cons: The store I bought it from listed read as 50MB/s and write as 20MB/s, I get exactly HALF that in a USB 3.0 port.

Other Thoughts: Worthless as a USB 3.0 drive since there are some USB 2.0 drives that are faster! Maybe it's just me and others will have better results but it's a big discrepancy. Needless to say, it's only worth the price of a CHEAP 2.0 drive.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

I'm sorry to hear that you had this issue with performance. Please note that our advertised performance is measured using ATTO benchmarks on the Intel X79 motherboards. Transfer speeds can vary if transferring multiple files and/or using a different platform. If you have any further questions please send me an e-mail: Support@Patriotmem.com and I'll be glad to assist you in the matter.

Thank you for choosing Patriot Memory!

Best Regards,
James

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Flash Drive

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Xpress 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PSF8GXPUSB

Pros: Cheap pen drive, works fine and the desing is pretty and cool. USB 3. Loving it already and i am backing up my pictures, documents and everything on it.

Cons: Shipping to Puerto Rico is expensive for such a small item, is not Patriot or the manufacturer fault but just to let know. Still is a great pen drive for the money

Other Thoughts: Bough this and a Case fan to try newegg service for the first time and i am happy with it.

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Xpress 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PSF8GXPUSB
