2 out of 5 eggsUnacceptably slow writes

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Mini 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PSF16GSMUSB

Pros: Physically small drive; easy to attach to a keychain (with the proper tiny keyring).

Rubberized shell makes it durable (not that USB flash drives are easy to destroy in the first place).

Fast read speeds. Maxed out my USB2 port when running a benchmark. (~30MB/s solid)

Cons: Unacceptably slow write speeds. I would go so far as to claim fraud in the description. (It's a shame fradulent advertising is no longer illegal. Buyer beware indeed.) The term "transfer speed" includes BOTH READ AND WRITE. It may very well read at the advertised 80MB/s, but my testing showed a laughably slow write speed of 2-4MB/s. This drive has the slowest write speed of any USB drive I own.

Other Thoughts: This drive will work for you if you don't plan on writing data to it very often. (Rescue boot USB with various utilities for system repair, etc.) If you plan on writing files to the drive more often than once every couple of months, pay more for a decent drive.

If the description says "Transfer speed XX MB/s" or "up to XX MB/s read/write" or doesn't list write speeds you have to ask yourself what the dishonest manufacturer is hiding. This is not a mistake I will be making again.

If I wasn't planning to use this drive for the above mentioned purpose I'd return it as defective.

1 out of 5 eggsslow

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Mini 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PSF16GSMUSB

Pros: Small, bright, and rubbery jacket. Decent Read speeds (140MB/s Burst that drops to 37MB/s)

Cons: Still slow write speeds of 11MB/s max. considering this is a USB3.0. I purchased a Transcend USB2.0 drive a year ago that writes faster than this. Extremely disappointed in the product.

3 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Mini 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PSF16GSMUSB

Pros: Very fast read speeds. Using USB 3.0 port, transferred 2GB file at 255MB/sec to SSD. Same file to HDD at 170MB/sec.

Cons: Write speed was only at 20MB/sec for same 2GB file as the read test.

Other Thoughts: Was hoping for better write speeds at USB 3.0 but for ten bucks AR, not a total disappointment.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mini Flash Drive

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Mini 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PSF16GSMUSB

Pros: I like this tiny thing. The rubber around is pleasurable to touch. The protective cap is very secure. Tried file transferring with USB3 and found it to be fast. It is great that there are no moving parts at all. Red color helps finding this thing easier. Metal tip looks and feels heavy duty.

Cons: Would be nice if the protective cap would be tighter when put on the rear end of the flash drive body. It sit there but can be lost easily.

Other Thoughts: No thoughts.
