I own several USB 3.0 flash drives and I'm not even sure how many USB 2.0 flash drives. This thing is as slow as some of my USB 2.0 flash drives. At times this drive seems happy and runs a little faster, but it doesn't even come close to some of my other cheaper USB 3.0 flash drives.
- Good price
- Amount of storage space
- USB 2.0 speeds are on par with other USB 2.0 drives
- The drive becomes hot, not warm. (aluminum housing will dissipate heat making it possible to feel the heat radiating from the electronics, but the heat radiating from this drive is not normal.) I have an aluminum Corsair Survivor, and it emits a fraction of the heat this Patriot does.
- BENCHMARKED USB 3.0 speeds are from low 20 MB to 28 MB a second READ, and 9 to 11 MB WRITE. I have USB 2.0 drives that perform the same using USB 3.0 ports.
- REAL WORLD USB 3.0 SPEEDS are a lot worse. Coping files to and from the drive found that the drive runs a lot slower in the real world compared to BENCHMARK results. At an average the drive gets 11 to 15 MB a second READ and 5 to 7 MB WRITE speeds. Doesn't even come close to my other USB 3.0 flash drives. Very disappointing! *These results might be due to some sort of defect with the Patriot drive, but if these are the normal REAL WORD speeds to be expected... buy yourself a good quality USB 2.0 or spend more money with a different manufacturer so you would at least get some USB 3.Read more ›
However it does not work in a USB 3.0 slot. Only works in USB 2.0 slots.
I thought I purchased a fast USB 3.0 and received a USB performance that runs super hot on a USB 2.0 slot instead of the claimed USB 3.0
I sent trouble report to Patriot about this. I have never received a reply from their support group. I would never buy another product from them with this service.
The 'read' speeds are excellent and super fast at 71MB reading speeds and horribly 5MB writing speeds. Why is the writing speeds soo slow and not even up in the 30's or 40's MB's like the rest. A USB 2.0 flash drive has faster writing speeds than this! If you are going to be writing into this flash drive a lot with big files then look elsewhere because this doesn't pack the 3.0 punch!
But if you just want to read from this USB then this makes an good choice but for the price there are others that are more reliable and faster than this one!
Overall construction is good with aluminum chassis but who knows how long it will last!
From 1 to 10 score, this one receives a 6.
As a gift for students who's mascot it the PATRIOTS, did like the color of the device and the lettering on the side (PATRIOT Memory). It looked good with a red lanyard attached to their gift bags. The clear, hard plastic cap will surely get lost before long, but I knew that going into the purchase. I prefer a mechanical means of covering the USB interface rather than a removable cap.
