This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 256GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF256GSBUSB
Pros: Impressed with the small size and rubber case. It is too big to use two at once even at the back of a desktop where the ports are very close.
USB 3.0 transfer speeds easily exceed 100 MB/s down.
I am very happy.
Cons: $ / Gb it is not competitive. You are paying a premium price for the sexiness of 256Gb in one stick.
It would be much cheaper to buy 4x 32 Gb sticks on sale for $16 each.
Pros: The device is solid and works very well as a USB Dock. Impressed with the transfer speed using a SATAIII 7200 Drive, easily able to hold over 99 MB/s in windows 7 which I found to be good considering it is hooked to a laptop USB 3.0. Not optimal conditions.
The Clone function works very well, You end up with a mirror of the original drive.
Cons: This is not a real con but more of a "Would Be Nice".
Eg, you have a 3 Tb Drive with 500 Mb on it used, it would be nice if the device was able to see 500Mb and allow a copy to a 1Tb Drive.
I understand how partitions work so I understand that my suggestion would greatly increase the level of complexity of the device.
It would also be interesting to have a GUI status monitor ( a simple TSR that the user could elect to install to monitor the drives and the disk cop function )
Pros: Replaced a 120Hz monitor without G Sync with this monitor. The technology works and is clearly noticeable. No Stutters whatsoever. I believe that the effect would be even more apparent on a mid level system or trying to run a game where FPS would dip below 80. Very impressed, if you have the money, Its worth it.
Tested it on Watchdogs, Borderland Pre and BF4. All set to ultra 1920x1080.
Cons: Cost? if that is a real thing to you, then look elsewhere.
