This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Rage XT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF64GSRUSB
Pros: Lots of storage
Super fast USB 3.0 data transfer rates
Other Thoughts: This USB drive has been working for me without a glitch for about a year and 6 months.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Can hook up a mSATA SSD via USB
Cons: Can only format it, cannot view the disk or its contents in windows explorer
Not worth $30
Other Thoughts: I'm trying to format a SSD that was used as a caching drive and has my info on it, and I can initiate a full format from Disk Management, but it gets to 2% every time and then my computer tells me that the device malfunctioned and windows no longer recognizes it. If I do a quick format it completes but I still cannot see the drive in windows explorer, whether I use exFAT or NTFS. Maybe it's just my mSATA SSD, but I kind of doubt that. Also there is no manual in the box, no drivers, no info on how to get drivers, just a sticker on a brown cardboard box that says "USB 3.0 MSATA CASE" and that's it.
I'm using a laptop so it's a real hassel to put a mSATA drive in or take it out, but it looks like that's what I'm going to have to do to fully format it.
Pros: Works great and is fast!
Powered - 3.5" drive support
On/off switch on power cord
Cons: None yet
Other Thoughts: If you don't plug the power in and you plug in a 3.5" drive, nothing bad happens, it doesn't try to spin it up or anything, it just acts like it doesn't recognize it. And you don't need the power supply to use it with 2.5" drives!
Also when you safely disconnect, the drive will stop spinning, and then you can remove it without unplugging the USB cord, and then you can plug in another drive without un-plugging and plugging in the USB cord.
