First, a few notes on the drive itself. I don't think it can be beat value-wise as USB 3.0 drive. I've owned the 16gb model for a little over a year now, and it has seen heavy use as a general use drive, a media drive, and it's even been used multiple times as an OS install drive. Since I work in IT, this drive has been put through the paces plus some. A week ago, the internal mechanism that allows the drive to retract finally completely broke. It still worked, but was a pain to use because it was constantly trying to close itself and often would unplug itself from the computer. Plus it was a general pain to plug it. So, here is how I fixed mine. **Note, I'm aware this is a macgyver, but hey, it works.**

First, find some superglue. Everybody has superglue! Now, while the flash drive is in the "closed position" (ie the blue plastic is sticking out as far as it can), spread some superglue on the blue plastic. Next, get some vice grips or vice clamps, and clamp the drive into the "open position" (ie the usb plug is sticking out as far as it can). If you don't have vice grips, you could probably still hold it in the open position by wedging it between two heavy objects. Anyhow, this means the superglue ends up between the blue and the white plastic. After this, I also beaded some superglue in the little gap between the blue and white plastic just to reinforce it, but I don't know if this is required. Let it dry overnight. The end result will be a fast and cheap USB 3 flash drive that is always in the open position. Mine has now been like this for a week and it is still solid. Honestly, I wish I had done this a long time ago, because the built in mechanism is just a pain.

I was stunned at how fast this drive is even with USB 2.0. Using Crystal DiskMark with a 100MB file, it hit 32 MB/sec Read and 20 MB/sec Write with USB 2.0. With USB 3.0 the numbers were 64 MB/sec Read and 24 MB/sec Write. So, although USB 3.0 doubled the Read speed, the Write speed was not much different and still very fast under USB 2.0. I also bought the Super Talent Express Duo USB 3.0 16 GB Flash Drive ST3U16EDB and found it to be slightly faster on Read performance (71 MB/sec with USB 3.0 and 36 MB/sec with USB 2.0). But I don't like the SuperTalent's loose cap and prefer the spring-loaded retractable Patriot design. There are faster flash drives but none that I could find at this price level.

I think Lenny (1st review above) failed to mention that his test program has not been tested to work accurately on USB 3.0. On paper, USB 3.0 is capable of transfer speeds of up to 5Gbps (gigabits per second); that's a little over 10 times faster than USB 2.0's 480Mbps (1,000Mbps equals 1Gbps). In practice, it won't always be this much faster -- mileage may vary depending on hardware configuration -- but it will always be much faster than USB 2.0.

The New York Times decided to test this "10 times faster" line, so it used brand new USB 3.0 hard drives and a desktop computer with an ideal configuration for transferring data over a USB 3.0 cable. In the test, writer Rik Fairlie copied a folder containing 10GB of files. He did this once over USB 2.0 and once over USB 3.0. The USB 3.0 connection took 6 minutes, 31 seconds, and the USB 2.0 connection took 22 minutes, 14 seconds. That's still a dramatic improvement (USB 3.0 was about 3.5 times faster), but it doesn't live up to the marketing hype.

Other real-world tests have produced similar results -- 23 seconds for 500 photos on 3.0, 1 minute and 12 seconds on 2.0 from Amazon, for example. TweakTown clocked the actual speed at 2.8Gbps. That's still mighty impressive. USB 3.0 is significantly faster than its predecessor; it's the difference between 20 miles per hour on a side street and 70 on the highway. It'll get you where you need to go much more quickly. I backed up our office back-up files, which are a mix of documents, photos, videos, and voice recordings. They took 2 minutes and 17 seconds to write on this drive from my ASUS NQ73JQ notebook with 12Gb RAM, 49 seconds to read/transfer back. My old Patriot USB 2.0 drive took 7 minutes 9 seconds to write, 5 minutes 13 seconds to transfer back the same back up files.

Buy this drive IF YOU HAVE A 3.0 USB PORT and you won't be disappointed - well worth the money.

The Patriot Supersonic Xpress 16 GB Flash Drive exceeded my expectations of download speed. I make backups of data that produces a 4 GB file. My USB 2.0 Cruzer took about 13-15 min. to do the job in a USB 3.0 port. The Patriot Flash Drive makes the backup in less than 2 min. Helps me finish my work and leave! It's a great investment at only $25.

First of all, this is the fastest flash drive I've owned so far. Keep in mind, to receive the fastest transfer speeds, you WILL need to have a USB 3.0 port on your desktop or laptop. However, it transfers files beautifully even when plugged in to a USB 2.0 port.

This is probably not typical, but on my first major file transfer (several folders with video clips and other files amounting to about 13gb) I got speeds of 100mb/s which eventually slowed down to an average of 60mb/s. That's still a huge step up from the 2-5mb/s I would get with my old flash drive.

About the capless design, it is okay but not the greatest. It uses a spring-type mechanism similar to the capless pens where you "click" it to open or shut it. It's definitely not worth making a fuss about, and other than that little detail, I can recommend this flash drive without any hesitation.
