Product works, with some hiccups
on September 3, 2010
I bought this flashdrive to replace a Sandisk 8gb one that I lost. It was an excellent deal as I only paid half as more than the cost of said 8gb. The Patriot 16gb however looks and feels cheaper. The plastic is light, thin and noticeably softer to the touch (I was actually worried it would crack in my pocket).
Another reason I bought it, is that it is capless and the USB connector slides back and forth into the drive's case. This too was a bit faulty as (unlike the sandisk) the Patriot's connector does not lock in the closed position (I thought it was broken when I first opened it) and slides in and out freely wherever it is.
I have had no problems with it and the computers I interact with and it does install and transer files faster than the old Sandisk--and other brands I've used. Overall its just a decent flashdrive with a lame casing.
