4 out of 5 eggsRecomended!

This review is from: Patriot 32GB Tab Flash Drive Model PSF32GTAB3USB

Pros: Tough, extremely durable, decent performance. Small. Fits on a keychain for portability and security.

Cons: First one died in under two months, but Patriot replaced it and the new one has been stellar.

Other Thoughts: A year and a half ago I left a poor review about this thing. While I liked the performance and build quality, it died on me in under two months. Patriot responded to my negative review by quickly shipping me a new one. I've now been beating the replacement to death on my keychain for more than a year and a half. The metal is bent, the edges are rounded from constantly banging into my keys, and I've probably got it wet a half dozen times.

The drive still works perfectly. No corruption, no slowdowns, no data loss, no problems! The failure of the first drive was irritating, but I now rank it as one of the best USB drives I've ever owned. I also coupled it with an all-metal quick disconnect on my keychain so I don't have the weight of my keys hanging on my USB ports.

This review is from: Patriot 32GB Tab Flash Drive Model PSF32GTAB3USB

Pros: Small and fast (read mode). I was hoping to use it as live USB stick for Lubuntu

Cons: DOA, PC doesn't recognize the drive

Other Thoughts: Seems to be a common issue with Tab drives of all sizes to die very quick. Probably Patriot should review their quality standards.

5 out of 5 eggsSeriously Awesome!

This review is from: Patriot 32GB Tab Flash Drive Model PSF32GTAB3USB

Pros: Small size
Fast Speeds (when plugged into USB 3.0 port)
Very durable
Solid casing

Ive had this for about 6 months now and i just checked it with badblocks, and its still workin strong. Its been on my keychain the whole time, and my keys get thrown around a lot and the USB flash drive has stood up to the beating.

Cons: very small, must be attached to something at all times, otherwise one may lose it. doesnt come with a lanyard or anything.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat While Functional

This review is from: Patriot 32GB Tab Flash Drive Model PSF32GTAB3USB

Pros: This drive performed great for all my uses, I mainly used this drive for file storage. I keep a few diagnostic tools on this device and personal documents for college. It writes quick and is small ebough and sturdy enough that i can put it on my keychain wihtout worry.

Cons: I purchased this drive on 09/25/13 and as of 02/23/14 this drive has failed. Luckily i keep backups of my flshdrives or I would have been very upset at the sudden file loss. This drive is recognized in windows as a drive with 0 bytes of storage. I have tried formatting in Windows, OSX and Linux with different ultilities and they have all failed. I am very dissappointed at the longevity of this flashdrive.

Other Thoughts: This was my first Patriot Memory purchase and eventhough it failed I was still happy with the perfomance of the drive while it lasted. I just hope none of their other flash memory producs have such a short life span.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little USB Flash Drive

This review is from: Patriot 32GB Tab Flash Drive Model PSF32GTAB3USB

Pros: Utilized with Raspberry Pi and Raspbmc to run an XBMC Media Center off of it. Has sped up the Pi considerably. Menus and other operations are so much better after switching to this for primary storage.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I have two of these set up to stream movies from my NAS. Going to probably get a third for an additional TV.

This review is from: Patriot 32GB Tab Flash Drive Model PSF32GTAB3USB

Pros: Small form factor
Can be plugged into a laptop's USB port and forgotten until needed

Cons: Runs hot
Not true USB 3.0 speeds

Other Thoughts: Overall satisfied with this purchase since I was looking for a flash drive which I could plug into my laptop and forget about. I am slightly concerned with how hot it runs and hope it stays reliable.

3 out of 5 eggsGood drive, if it works.

This review is from: Patriot 32GB Tab Flash Drive Model PSF32GTAB3USB

Pros: Fast, small

Cons: Started to die after about a month, and failed after about 2 months

Other Thoughts: The drive started to suffer intermitent failures shortly after the return period was up and died after 2 months. Thata a lot of money to waste like that.

2 out of 5 eggsGood Read, Poor Write, Horrible Software

This review is from: Patriot 32GB Tab Flash Drive Model PSF32GTAB3USB

Pros: Extremely compact design.
Respectable write speed.

Cons: Undersized hole - doesn't fit on most keychains.
Very poor write speed.
Required firmware update with very poor software.

Other Thoughts: Tested with Crystal Disk Mark 3.0.2
- Sequential Write (1000MB): 10.84 MB/s
- Random Write (412KB): 0.647 MB/s
- Random Write (4KB): 0.035 MB/s
- Sequential Read (512KB): 148.9 MB/s
- Random Read (512kb): 127.9 MB/s
- Random Read (4KB): 9.958 MB/S

Very sleek and compact - too compact in some ways. A hole that's a tiny bit larger could actually accommodate a normal keychain. The drive required a firmware update, and the software was very amateurish and not intuitive. When you're updating firmware, you really don't want to "cross your fingers" and hope that it knows what it's doing (especially since it reported a 16GB drive as a Toshiba 8GB).
