Patriot Supersonic Magnum 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF64GSMNUSB

1 out of 5 eggs write corruption 03/26/2013

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Magnum 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF64GSMNUSB

Pros: ~100MB/sec

Cons: 1) Consistent file corruption when writing from my laptop to the Patriot Magnum. (No problem when writing same files to a USB3 external HDD, for comparison.) File corruption makes this unusable.
2) Physically too wide. Overlaps adjacent side-by-side USB port.

Other Thoughts: Too bad. This one is going back for a refund.
The Patriot Supersonic Magnum is fast enough to be usable - roughly 100MB/sec when writing or reading 50MB camera files. But it consistently gives write errors and corrupts files, so that kills it.
Also, it is physically too wide and overlaps adjacent side-by-side USB ports.

1 out of 5 eggs corrupts files - totally unacceptable 03/20/2013

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Magnum 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF64GSMNUSB

Pros: No Pros.
I can't get it to write files without corrupting them.

Cons: Corrupts files.
Physically too big. Won't fit in side-by-side USB sockets when a device is in an adjacent socket.

Other Thoughts: This is going back for a refund. Very disappointing.

I tested it multiple times with various files and scenarios. It always corrupts some of the files I try to write to it. TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE.
It came formatted FAT32. I tried formatting it with exFAT and then with NTFS. Both quick and then full. Still no difference. Every attempt at write resulted in some corrupted files.
Also, it is so physically wide that it overlaps adjacent side-by-side USB sockets.

Tested with a folder of 100 RAW NEF camera files, each about 50MB in size, for a total of 5GB. Tested on 2 computers: desktop and laptop.
"Write" 55 sec = 91MB/sec.
Read 38 sec = 132 MB/sec.
Write is in quotes because it corrupts some of the files when it writes them.

With its speed, this could be a highly usable USB stick.
But because of the file corruption and physically unusable size, this product is a total failure. Very disappointing. I expected better from Patriot.
