Faster than most of my other sticks and very simple to use. Luv that it doesn't have a cap to lose. Others have complained about the end releasing when attempting to plugin the stick into a USB port. It's important too note that when you plug it in you are not touching the release lever or it will release, pushing on the release lever wasn't a good idea per another review (thanks to that other reviewer for finding that out). This is not the highest quality materials in the world but for a $30 16 GB memory card I have no complaints (very fast, easy, and conveinent).

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.

I've gone through tons of USB drives ever since my first 128MB USB drive I got years ago. About 70% of the USB drives I've owned, I either lost the cap, the cap got stolen, or the dog ate the cap. I guess you can say I'm tired losing the caps and having an exposed USB drive that's constantly collecting pocket lint. Buying this Patriot Dash USB Drive has solved one of my 99 problems. I don't have to worry about losing another cap and it's a bit faster than most standard drives out there. There are similar capless drives out there but Patriot won my vote because its price is lower than most competitors at the time I bought it.

The only disappointment with this product is that the speed of data transfer is unbelievably slow. Reading is pretty slow, but writing is agonizingly slow.

The Amazon certainly delivered this product to me very quickly. Overall I like this product. The speed is the only thing I don't like it. It is much slower than I expect.

The Patriot Signature Dash 32GB flash drive is really cheap, with a lot of capacity to store all the data that I need.

But it's too slow! At less than 10MBps write speed, you need almost an hour to fill it.

I purchased it for use in my USB equipped TV, to store all my videos and music, and it's fine as the read speed is high enough to playback HD videos without skips.

But I widh it was faster, as it annoys having to wait a lot each time I copy new data to the drive.

I bought this drive to hold Music on and plug into the USB port in my car. I have it filled until nothing else will fit. It has so far worked just as one would expect. It sits in the car and supplies music with out any problems. I might have liked a fster drive but for the price it works fine. Even with the drive having 1000's of songs on it it reads up the data and is ready before I back out of the drive.

Don't really have any thing bad to say. It does what is it supposed to to the point where I don't even think about it.

I did not rate it 5 stars only because I wish it was faster but without costing more.

Not the same quality and speed as the SanDisk Titaniun Cruisers, but at least it's cheap - the best deal for 32GB USB flash drives. It's not made for your keychain as there is no extension to loop to the keychain - it's only good for your pockets and purses.
It's not very fast - I was able to get up to 20 MB/s transferring large files (500MB - 10GB) into the drive (write), and a little faster out (read).
Overall, a good enough thumb drive for regular everyday uses.

I purchased this memory stick to give back and forth between family members to trade digital photos we all had of each other. It is a good memory stick and holds a lot of data and it is priced fairly. It is a USB 2.0 compatible memory drive that will work on USB 1.1. I have used it on Windows 7 32 and 64 bit, Vista 32 and 64 bit, Windows XP, Windows Home Server Version 1 and WHS 2011 operating systems without any issues.

The memory has a 5 year warranty and you just plug it in and it works. It features a retractable capless design which means that the USB connector slides out of the body for use. This is actually one of the products weaknesses as the USB connector slide does not lock the USB connector either in the memory body when it is in your pocket nor does it lock the connector in the extended position when you are trying to use it. It is hard enough to insert a USB connector into a USB port in a poorly lit computer area but it is especially difficult when the connector keeps sliding back into the body instead of plugging into the computer. (Poor design)

The second issue is that while the memory works well it is slow to read and write. The write speed varies between 2 and 3.5 MB/sec on a fast computer. That means it was 2 to 4 times slower to a comparable memory brand I also use. It is frustrating to wait 9 minutes to load one video to take with you so your family can see it.

Overall I rate it a 3 star rank as it works but it has some design and performance issues

The Patriot Dash flash drive works great. It is fast and reliable. The only better flash drives that I have found are the more expensive Patriot flash drives (XT Boost, Rage and Magnum).
