This review is from: PNY 32GB Duo-Link OTG USB 3.0 Flash Drive (P-FDI32GLA01S-GE)
Pros: Nothing I can think of except.
I can use it as a 32 USB flash drive
Cons: I've tried this with 2- iphone5's and a iPhone6 the app that I download from iTunes just locks up on the 1st screen. I wasted about 2 hours tonight with zero success.
Other Thoughts: I spent more time in search of answers and I got it working.
1. Connect the drive to your iPhone
2. Select get app
3. Download app
4 Let it completely download
5. REMOVE the thumb drive from your iPhone
6. Install the app
7. After you complete the install then connect the thumb drive and it works

I find the interface over engineered and clunky but usable.
I'm going to upgrade this from 1 star to 3 stars
Pros: 4k screen, touch screen, not too hot on my lap, super fast throughput. OK for most games, perfect for still photo editing IE. Photoshop CS6+
I would buy again.
Cons: Learning curve, you need to learn how to manipulate the screen resolution and display size for some programs, it not straight forward as you might think but several youtube videos cover the subject. If you take the time to learn it then you are rewarded with a great view.
The Thunderbolt port/USB 3.1c/DisplayPort is not documented well. IMHO it is a type 3 Thunderbolt port because it also is a USB3.1c port. Some doc's claim it to be a type 2 Thunderbolt port which confused me??? Is it also a displayport without an attapter?
Make a lighter power supply. I thought I was adding about a 1b to my current setup but adding extra SSD, cables, USB DVD and that brick of a power supply I'm up over 3lbs.
Other Thoughts: I bought a SATA to USB 3.1c cable and plugged in a 1TB size SSD. The transfer rate was over 400Mbs on large files. It did a 200GB image backup in 10 minutes.
Make a lighter power supply
1lb lighter would make this a 6 star.
This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Magnum 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF64GSMNUSB
Pros: I've been beating this for years. It works and works perfect. I use it to transfer 50 - 100 mb size graphic files in mass all the time. I normally just copy or write the files and remove the drive. The computer you use sets the speed. Some computers that claim USB are better than others. Laptops are the worse IMHO. My highend Laptop gives good speeds but still not on par with my desktop. If your MB supports USB3 acceleration with a SSD to USB flash drive speeds with large files exceed manufactures speed rating. Small files are not bad but much slower.
Love it, I own 1-64gb & 2-128gb models.
Other Thoughts: Consider them pro use equipment. Worth every penny in time savings if you are on the clock.READ FULL REVIEW
