3 out of 5 eggs doesnt perform as advertised 01/04/2010

This review is from: Patriot Xporter XT Boost 16GB Flash Drive (USB 2.0 Portable) Model PEF16GUSB

Pros:

Reads are fast 31MB/s, looks neat seems like a solid drive. Nice rubber finish.

Cons:

10.6MB/s WRITE SPEED on large and smaller files it goes around a MB up and down from 10.6 but still it was advertised at 30 and i dont ever seen half of that.
14.8GB after formating to fat32 or exfat

Other Thoughts:

Overall not a terrible drive, just a little disapointing, i still see it to be worth it with the mail in rebate.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Complexed,

Please be aware that any advertised speeds is the maximum obtained speeds, not the overall sustained speeds. Furthermore each user's system speed will vary due to the components in their system. Size of files and amount of files transferred will also effect the speeds of transfers. Please don't hesitate to contact support@patriotmem.com if you have any further questions or issues with your drive.

Regards,
Patriot Memory Support Team
