This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Rage XT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF64GSRUSB
Capless, USB 3.0, Great Performance & Durability.. It's an excellent choice when you happen to get a good, non-defective drive.
Bulkier design. It can be hard to have one of these drives and use the USB port right next to the one currently in use. Patriot quality control is lacking lately.
I've owned one of these drives for a long period of time and have been very happy with how it performed and held up to the daily abuse that I put it through as a technician. (I probably shove it in a USB port at least 15 times per day.) I recently ordered two more as I was very pleased with the first one that I bought early last year. However, I was very disappointed as it took 6 tries to get 2 functional drives with a sturdy USB head. Initially the first 4 drives that were sent to me were extremely loose in this area. After comparing it to the first drive that I’ve owned, it did not meet the quality of Patriot that I have expected. 48 hours after receiving the last set of non-defective drives, one of them quit being recognized and would no longer show up on any system. That put the nail in the coffin for me with the whole situation and I just returned them both. I cannot afford to waste my time with these drives anymore. My guess is that the quality control team is missing a bunch of these bad drives or they are going cheaper on the manufacturing process compared to last year. As of right now, I would no longer recommend these drives (at least until a new batch arrives at the warehouse, hence why they are currently on sale for cheap.)
