5 out of 5 eggsATTO test shows 25MB/s write/157MB/s read

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF8GSBUSB

Pros: This is a FAST 3.0 USB thumb drive. Great value.
When tested with ATTO, que depth of 4, overlapped I/O; results 25MB/s write/157MB/s read.
Of course not all file sizes transfer at the top rate. Like most USB thumb drives the transfer rate approach the upper speed once file sizes are 64 MB or larger.
I plan to use it as my installation drive for Windows 10. It should be significantly faster installation than from a DVD.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsWin10 OS Back up

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF8GSBUSB

Pros: Using this USB flash drive to create my first OS back up for Win10. Works like a charm and takes 30mins or less to do a clean install for win10 using this USB drive vs CD

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Only reason I got this USB was to replace my win7 install disk that came with my computer years ago. Win10 makes it really easy to create a image back up for win10. Having a Reinstall USB drive takes stress off my shoulders since I don't have to reorder a new install disc from my OEM which is 20-25 bucks. I plan to buy another for my other version of Win10 PRO as i currently using this drive for win10 home. image back up only takes up 4-5 gigs.

5 out of 5 eggsFaster then my other USB 3.0

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF8GSBUSB

Pros: Fast shipping, almost twice as fast as another so called usb 3.0 transcend 4gig. I was getting 5.2mb/sec with transcends and this one blazes at 9.4mb/sec.

Cons: I will lose the cap to this since its not attached in some way...but oh well thats my own habit with small things.

4 out of 5 eggsPATRIOT 8GB USB 3.0 DRIVE

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF8GSBUSB

Pros: USB 3.0 FLASH DRIVE, WORKS PERFECT, GOOD SPEEDS.

Cons: TESTED ON A WINDOWS 8.1 x64bit setup and ran ATTO Benchmark ... I may be doing something wrong but I am not getting advertised speeds. I formatted drive using fat32(default allocation size), atto benchmark with default setting shows 11mb write speeds and 30mb read speeds in a blue usb 3.0 port. usb 3.0 is supposed to be natively supported by Windows 8.1 so I didn't install any 3.0 drivers. I may have to try to install the drivers anyway. I am still happy as this device works just fine for my needs.

Other Thoughts: I wish my car moved at 30mb/sec.

1 out of 5 eggsHow Cheap!

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF8GSBUSB

Pros: The device itself is excellent.

Cons: I was very disappointed that they did not include a lanyard with the flash drive. They saved a 10 cents. How cheap! The other Patriot Flash drive I purchase had one.
