5 out of 5 eggsBest Flash Drive Ever

Pros: Can go through the washer.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I bought this from newegg over a year ago, and had to come back just to post this review. From now on this is the only brand of flash memory I will ever buy! I recently forgot this little guy in my jeans pocket and into the wash they went. Full wash cycle, then into the dryer. The next day when I put on my jeans I was very sad, as I realized my favorite little flash drive suffered the worst the fates. I had to know if if still worked (not expecting anything) and to my amazement, I popped it in my laptop, and all my data was unharmed.

This is without a doubt, the best flash drive my money has ever bought. Any piece of tech that can survive a round with the washer and dryer is a champion! Buy Patriot. Buy it now!

4 out of 5 eggsWorks fine, quite small

Pros: Works fine. No issues. 16 GB is a sweet size.

Cons: Be sure you really want a little tiny usb memory stick. It is no good if you loose it. This thing is pretty small and I have had trouble with loosing it (not just my mind either) once or twice.

Other Thoughts: You might consider a lanyard to go with it, or if it stays in the usb port most of the time. Possibly if its a situation where a big stick could get knocked off because it's sticking out of a portable computer or your tower is just in a bad spot - this could be just the ticket.

1 out of 5 eggsDead like a rock

Pros: Fairly small.

Cons: Tried to copy some files worth about 10GB to the drive, after about 1 hr, got an error. Drive not recognizable by Windows, which requested drive be formated. Efforts to format or delete partition, with Patriot's own erase utility, as well as Parted Magic, were met with "write-protected" mode message. Write-protected? Really? Patriot probably uses bad quality memory chips for this drive.

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsPoor performance

Pros: Small and smartly designed.16GB capacity.

Cons: Purchased to put in my car for MP3s. All cars I try to play it in fail to read it. Will only play in home PC (FAT 32 formatted). Disappointed.

Other Thoughts: Would not recommend for car use.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I'm sorry to hear that you experienced some issues using our flash drive in your Vehicle's MP3 player. It sounds like the radio unit is very specific on the type of file system it supports. Please consult the stereo manual or feel fee to send me an e-mail and I will be glad to assist you in troubleshooting the issue.

Thank you for choosing Patriot Memory.

4 out of 5 eggs15 Gig 2.0

Pros: Very inexpensive. Was only $10 w/free shipping/handling. Works as I thought it may work. Works fine. It seem to get high reviews on the most part, and I hope that I have mine for many years.
Runs just fine., isn't really slow, I didn't time it.

Cons: Not that I'm really complaining, but why don't they call these 16 gig flash drives a 15 gig? I realize there's other components, but I'm really not getting the 16 gig as needed.

Other Thoughts: How can you complain for 10 bucks? It holds a lot of photos , docs and most things you need. Need 32 gig, buy 1 that costs about twice as much! Fits the bill.

4 out of 5 eggsBad batches

Pros: Decent flash drives. No cap to lose. Decent transfer speeds if you get a good one.

Cons: Some of these drives have different serials than the others and they will write files at half speed.

Other Thoughts: These drives are either hit or miss. You'll either get a good one with a serial ending in "PMP" or a bad one with a serial ending in "PMS". The good ones transfer at decent speeds but the bad ones transfer at about half of that. I bought six of these over time and got one bad one. One of the drives also looked like someone had bought it before, formatted it, and returned it. Probably won't buy these again. When I buy new items I like my items to be new.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: > It's Small
> It's plug and play
> Got it for less than $14

Cons: > Formatting to NTFS decreases performance

Other Thoughts: I got this drive to move large files between two PCs. Even over a
WirelessN network, anything over 1 gig seems incredibly slow. I formatted to NTFS because I was moving files over the 4GB limit of FAT32. I noticed the transfer rate slow down to about 7 mb/s. According to Patriot's website:

Fat the default file format, is the best suited file type in terms of performance for our USB Flash drives. If you are concerned about performance, we would not recommend to convert the file type to NTFS. We would only recommend this in converting larger files. (>4GB)

Just an FYI
