This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Magnum 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF64GSMNUSB
Pros: Very fast write speed - our tests on a PCIe USB 3.0 card with SATA 3.0 spinner drives show around 85-100 MB/s write time. Read times are as fast if not faster.
Cons: * Unreliable - out of 40 we have purchased, 6 out of 20 failed right out of the box and 3 out of 20 failed in the field. The 6 that failed out of the box show up as "Removable Drive" in My Computer and are essentially read only devices. I haven't been able to get information about the field failures yet, but that's inconsequential to me because the failure rate is totally unacceptable.
* Too Wide - you cannot use a USB device in a nearby port due to the width of this device.
Other Thoughts: Note that the ones I purchased were not through NewEgg, but through a different supplier. I am exchanging the last batch of 20 that we purchased where 6 failed immediately. I can't be confident they will not fail while in use in the field.READ FULL REVIEW
