This review is from: Patriot Axle 64GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Gray) Model PSF64GAUSBG
cheap, large capacity
extremely slow. like zip drive slow. write tops out at 4.5mb, and once you hit slow files goes down to single digit kilobytes. takes ubuntu about 10-15 MINUTES to boot of of this thing. taking it back tonite!!
I like newegg, that's why I buy questionable stuff at fry's, so newegg doesn't loose money on rma's.
Dear Encounter Digital,
I'm sorry to hear that you had some performance issues with the Axle drive. Please note that because the drive is using a COB (chip on board) technology for cost effectiveness and size it's normal for the write speeds to be anywhere from 3-6MB/s. For our USB 2.0 performance drives please refer to our Rage and Xporter XT Boost drive.
