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.

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 initially purchased the 32Gb drive on April 2013; and it worked ok until it died 10 months later. And I know that some people are pretty tough on their thumb drives, I'm not, the drive rarely got used; and when it did, it was transported in a small camera case that was then transported in my laptop bag. Unfortunately one day I loaded 3-4 Gb of data to the drive and connected it to another computer at which point the drive stopped working. Working with Patriot was very easy and I was able to return the defective drive and got a replacement, so I was happy.
UNTIL it happened again, the replacement drive has failed now. I use it to transfer files once or twice a week; and now after setting on a keychain hook for a week or so, the drive no longer works. So I will not be contacting Patriot for another replacement. I will look for another brand thumb drive.

I bought this drive from a B&M because it was on sale. I won't mention the name since it is probably verboten in an Amazon review, but suffice to say that, like Amazon, they're an authorized reseller.

Performance :

This is a USB 3.0 device but backwards compatible with USB 2.0 (and 1.1, of course, but you'll grow old filling this drive at USB 1.1 speed). The drive came pre-formatted in NTFS. The package says "up to 60 MB/s read / up to 25 MB/s write". I tested it on my i7 920 computer with USB 2.0 and h2testw. I managed to get about 30 MB/s read and 19.4 MB/s write. (See 4/19/12 edit below for USB 3.0 testing. Spoiler : it is good). h2testw writes large files, and has been pretty accurate for sustained large read / write numbers. It is possible that on a USB 3.0 system, I might get better result, but these numbers are pretty decent for a USB flash drive.

Edit 10/17/11. I reformatted it as FAT32 and re-ran the test. The results were pretty much the same. In fact, it is slightly less than 1 MB/s slower with FAT32 for reads.

Edit 4/19/12. I installed a PCIe USB 3.0 interface card and re-tested the drive. I reformatted it as exFat and ran it through h2testw. I'm getting 24.9 MB/s write and 57.4 MB/s read, very close to the manufacturer specified speed. I'm changing my review to 5 stars because of this.

If you're not familiar with h2testw, it is a small, free, Windows utility that will write large (1 GB) files of pseudo-random data to your drive, and read it back to verify that there are no errors. I recommend doing this, as it not only gives you a rough idea of how fast your device is, it also ensures you did not end up with a fake drive (a smaller drive altered to appear as a larger one).

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.
