Died after a few months of use.

No matter what I tried to do to format it, the error kept showing up.

Actual write speeds via USB 3.0 were even lower at roughly 6mbps.

***Before you put anything on this drive, go to the Patriot Memory website and install the patch!***

The patch is listed in their support section. Select the flash drive you have (Lifestyle USB 3.0 32gb Tab), then click "Submit." It will show the support page that has 3 options on the top line: "Knowledge Base", "Videos", and "Latest Drivers and Downloads." Click on the "Latest Drivers and Downloads" section and it will show a "Plugins" option. Click that then download the "Patriot Tab USB Patch." Save the file, unzip it, run it, then bam -it works as it should.

I was very excited to come across this 32gb, teeny-tiny flash drive with a metal case, no cap and keyringable... It's as if someone read my mind...
I bought the Patriot Tab, took it to work, placed it in my computer then copied all the info from my 32gb DataTravleler 102 drive that I had been carrying in my pocket for the past 2.5 years. (I believe it is a miracle that I never lost that drive, since I never put a lanyard on it, yet carried it around for so long... ) I never worried about the data and never had a problem with that drive. I just wanted a small, fast, durable drive to put on my key ring.

I turned to my co-workers to brag about how cool my new little flash drive was. I then properly ejected the drive and tossed it to my buddy. He was also immediately impressed. He put it in his computer and asked how fast the transfer rate was. He dragged a file to the drive but was stopped with the "write protected" warning... He laughed and told me I just purchased a $35 charm that would look cute on a bracelet, but that's about all...

Frustrated, I researched the problem and saw I was not alone. Luckily, I found the repair patch link on the Patriotmemory.com software section -[...] .

Pros
Very small. A little less than twice the length of the connector itself.
USB 3.0
Fast Read speeds about 110mb/s.

Cons
Write speeds could be better. I get about 10mb/s. Not really a big deal for my use case though.
Now here's the big one, and the reason I took off a star. There is no great provided way to connect it to a keyring. That's sort of a big issue. Connecting it directly to a keyring causes it to poke out perpendicular to the keyring and not lay flat. It really should have come with a keyring lanyard or the hole at the top of the key should be large enough to lay flat with keys when on a keyring. I fixed this by stealing a keyring lanyard off of one of my other devices, but for the price Patriot really should have included a 25 cent lanyard.

It was great when it was working. Died after a few months of use. All data gone. Flash drives are supposed to be very reliable? Not.

Good as a storage extended for a
MacBook Pro, but have had 2 so far and they both failed within 4 months.

Original Review:

I am getting 18MB/s write and 80MB/s read. Very pleased with that. Read is not quite the 140MB/s it is rated, but still very impressive. I love the very small size in that it will fit into my car's USB plug without sticking out and getting broken/bent. I also like the looks of the metal case.

Only downside is that this thing gets HOT!!!!! I mean almost too hot to grab. But I hope the metal case does its job diffusing the heat. Otherwise, this thing might have a very short life.

Updated Review: Well, after only 1 day of use, the USB stick died. Might be the extreme heat that this unit generates. But after writing to it, it refused to take any more files saying "write protected" or something like that. I googled the issues and did 5 different things to get it working (registry edit, LLF tools, etc) and none worked. Had to return for a replacement. Hope this one works better.

But really, this particular USB stick appears to be poorly designed as far as heat dissipation.

The drive seemed durable and stable, but overheated within a day. The one thing the drive did well was burn out quickly so I only lost a day's worth of work. Do not buy.

It died while I using it. Files are gone.
Windows now think it needs to be formatted but is write protected.

We purchased about a dozen of these USB keys for our office - we use them very frequently to move large files around.

They start off fast, and get slower and slower as you continue to use them, until they finally die with I/O errors.

Every single drive we purchased has failed within only a few months
