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.READ FULL REVIEW
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.
Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY THIS ENCLOSURE!READ FULL REVIEW
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.READ FULL REVIEW
