5 out of 5 eggsNice Design

Pros: Very fast read/write speed tho it does depend on how good your computer is. On an older model it gets like 10/15MB's but on a newer PC build I get almost the full potential of this drive.

Ive had this drive at least 6 months and it still works like it did on day one.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: For those who have issues with these drives....learn to safely remove them from windows with the hardware uninstaller....that is why alot of them die because you guys just like to download to them then rip them out in a hurry, take the time to remove them with Windows "Safely Remove Hardware" option and this drive will last you a lifetime.

2 out of 5 eggsNO SUPPORT

Pros: Nice design. Fast. Works well with Vista Ready Boost.

Cons: Didn't last. RMA'd once and they sent me another one, it died a few months later. Tried to RMA again, more than once, to "support@patriotmem.com" never heard back.

POOR SUPPORT!!!

Will never buy Patriot products again.

Other Thoughts: Buy something with better support.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Shadow,

We appreciate your feedback. Your lifetime warranty product will be replaced. Please contact support@patriotmem.com to find out the status of your replacement process.

With Regards,

Guy

4 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Fast. Rubber coating protects against small bangs and bumps, USB cable supplied and lanyard... Excellent Support, (see other thoughts). Would purchase again if I was looking for another flash drive.

Cons: After 2+ years of daily use the drive finally died.

Other Thoughts: Always do scheduled backups... I had just done a weekly backup and the next day the drive was inoperable (whew was I lucky). Contacted Patriot support and after trying a couple of things without success to revive the drive they indeed replaced it with a new one. Kudo's to Patriot Memory for the excellent support.

1 out of 5 eggsPiece Of Junk

Pros: Fast if it Works.

Cons: I am on my 4th one and it was DOA from Patriot. Used very little for about 10 Mo then just died. NE replaced and it lasted about a week, Patriot replaced, worked only a few days. These just died. Patriot replaced and it was DOA wrote just a few files to try and it came up write protected can't format or get back into it. Total Junk.

Other Thoughts: I hav two other flash drives that I use on the same computers and they have worked fine for over two years. One is a 6Gb Seagate and the other is a 2Gb Memorex. So for the Nay Sayers there is nothing wrong with my computers. I was just a fool for having confidence in Patriot.

I contacted Patriot Customer service and they said that I could trade for something else and pay the difference but that was about a week ago and they have quit answering my E-Mails. I have almost the price of a new unit in shipping charges back to NE and Patriot. I build several computers a year and I will tell everyone that I will NEVER use Patriot memory in another machine that I build. Thanks NewEgg for replacing the first one. Take a D--- Fool's advise and stay away from this drive A lifetime warranty is not worth much if you are going to have a lifetime of trouble.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Bob,

We apologize for the inconvenience that you have experienced. Your product comes with a lifetime warranty, please contact support@patriotmem.com and they can help you to get a replacement.

We have since fixed a glitche with our mail server. Please feel free to email support@patriotmem.com so we can further diagnose why these drives are failing on your system.

Best Regards,
Mikiel

5 out of 5 eggsOne of the Best

Pros: Excellent write and read speed, good size, extremely durable rubber casing, attachable chain with cap connector to avoid loss (which almost no other flash drive has).

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I really don't understand the argument of this drive being too large. It comes with an extension cable to put into ANY USB port which easily allows for multiple connections to take place. Few USB drives have the ability to read and write as well as these.
