5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Stick

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF16GSBUSB

Pros: Quick

Reliable

Feels great

Fits on a lanyard

Good size not to small not to big

USB port feels strong and not weak

Cons: 14.7GB Available(Advertised as 16GB)

Lanyard loop hole is way to small. If you are using this at

Cap is completely detachable(be careful not to lose)

University for example it will feel uncomfortable in your pocket as it doesn't have enough space to slide down the loop.

Other Thoughts: I didn't deduct any eggs as the pros far outweigh the cons of this device.

2 out of 5 eggswarranty, not really

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF16GSBUSB

Pros: Worked well for a while

Cons: warranty does not apply if it breaks

Other Thoughts: I stuck this into my laptop and left it there pretty much permanently, so it had little wear and tear from insert and removal. Then one day it just fell into pieces, wasnt dropped or stepped on or anything. Sent photo to company to ask for refund/replacement within the warranty period, they said no because it was broken. I thought that was the whole point...

2 out of 5 eggsAvoid for OS Installations

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF16GSBUSB

Pros: They seem relatively sturdy and reliable...we bought over 100 and haven't really seen a high failure rate or, as others reported, the rubber case separating.

Cons: If you intend to use this for Windows installations, you really need to look elsewhere.
we have yet to figure out the cause, but there's something "special" about these drives that causes them to break the windows setup program...though it at least doesn't appear to be on all machines.
We have other patriot models and other brands using the exact same build files and prep process that work fine on the same machines that these won't. It's probably a pretty rare case for many, but just something to be aware of that these have some unexpected behavior in our use case...and possibly others we just haven't encountered yet.

5 out of 5 eggsLove these things

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF16GSBUSB

Pros: Owned several Patriot Drives of this design already (3 USB 3.0 and 4 USB 2.0), fast rugged, rubberized housing, survives washing machine (cap didn't even come off), compact, loves riding around in my pocket. Never had one fail. Will never buy anything else again.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Everyone should encase their USB sticks in rubber. Just makes sense.

2 out of 5 eggsUSB pulls out from housing

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF16GSBUSB

Pros: 16GB USB 3.0

Cons: Device separates from housing as almost EVERY OTHER person has complained about.

I took the time to examine the USB once it had pulled out from the shell. It appears that a plastic sleeve slides over the metal USB plug. This sleeve connects to a plastic housing that sits inside the rubber shell. The rubber shell wraps around the plastic housing (hopefully) securing the USB chip in the shell.
The thing plastic tabs/locks break after minimal usage causing the sleeve to come loose making the USB chip pull from the shell and rubber housing.
I carefully and surgically inundated the entire shell and rubber housing with ample amounts of super-bond super glue and reassemble the USB chip and sleeve back in the plastic and rubber shell. (That was my attempt at humor; I soaked the darn thing in super glue and crammed it back in the rubber housing until my fingers were stuck to it). Seems to work great with super glue coming out from all ends and the thing still works without issue!

Other Thoughts: Patriot, take note: the few pennies you saved on using a cheap, thin plastic anchor to hold this device in is starting to impact your customer base. Your cost savings in the quality of these devices is having a negative impact on your return on investment.
