Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF32GSBUSB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Fast data transfers 07/15/2014

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF32GSBUSB

Pros: Very durable construction. Fast data transfers. I have moved several gigabytes of data to and from this drive in about the same amount of time it takes to copy to and from a USB 3 hard drive. The specs stated in the product info make it seem that it would have been slower. I was pleasantly surprised.

Cons: This is not really a "con"... just a concern. This drive has a cap rather than a slide out connector. I'm always worried that I will lose the cap somewhere.

Other Thoughts: If you need a great USB 3 thumb drive with lots of space, this is a great choice.

ORICO 3519SUS3-BK Aluminum Alloy HDD External Enclosure with E-SATA and USB3.0 Interface
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Nice outer construction. Easy to insert hard drives.

Cons: This unit is very noisy with the fan turned on. As a result, it's totally useless as a desktop drive. It failed less than one day after I received it. The included instructions are written in very bad English.


BUFFALO MiniStation Thunderbolt 1TB USB 3.0 / Thunderbolt 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great transfer speeds (when it works)

Cons: Thunderbolt port FAILED after just 2 months!

Other Thoughts: After only 2 months, the Thunderbolt port failed. I bought this drive specifically to use as a Thunderbolt drive with a MacBook Pro late 2011, so USB 3 is not an option. When I contacted Buffalo support about the problem, they told me that the policy is for me to return the drive AT MY EXPENSE, wait 3-5 days, and then they would send a replacement. The whole process would take about 7-10 business days. That is not acceptable. I have had a couple of Seagate drives fail, and on both occasions, they offered me an advance replacement option, and they did not charge me for shipping the product back to them. I will NEVER buy another product made by Buffalo again.
