Top Customer Reviews
I've been so impressed w/ this drive, that when my daughter took over my drive (it holds her whole itunes folder -- no more multiple disk back-ups for her!), I bought myself another.
Unfortunately, in May I accidentally fried my X-Mini by plugging it into a mangled USB port on a co-worker's computer. This was entirely my mistake and happened through no fault or defect of the X-Mini itself. Thankfully, I was in the habit of doing regular backups, so I didn't lose any data, but believe me now I look at every USB port before I plug in any device. At first I resolved to buy the exact same flash drive again, since I loved it so much, but I shopped around a little and took a chance on a new model by Verbatim, which was at the time called Store 'n' Go Micro, but has now been renamed Tuff 'n' Tiny. I've had this device for over six months now and have zero regrets about owning it. On durability and speed, it's comparable and perhaps better than the X-Mini, and since it doesn't have a casing or cap of any kind, there's nothing to work loose with prolonged use like the rubber housing of the X-Mini. As I said, I loved my X-Mini and you can't go wrong buying one, but as long as you're shopping I would definitely recommend giving the Tuff 'n' Tiny a look.
I copied a 620MB folder with 160 assorted items to each drive fresh out of the box.
Kingston 8 = 76 seconds (8.1 MB/s)
Partriot Mini = 77 seconds (8.1 MB/s)
Patriot Xporter = 59 seconds (10.5 MB/s)
Any of these thumbs would be a fine device for everyday use, all with fine write speeds.
The Xporter does stand out in speed being 20% faster than the other two, but on the flip side it is pretty bulky for a thumb drive. It is 2.9 inches long and almost 0.5" think. It is also rubber coated which is great for durability/dropability but also is sticky in the pocket for better or worse. This will be the drive I use when I need big files moved fast and easy.
I think the Patriot Mini will be my daily thumb based on the combo of size and speed. It's tiny (1.6" long) and rubber coated like its bigger brother. The rubber cap on both Patriots stayed on better than I expected. I don't foresee loosing them.
The Kingston is a fine drive with good speed (The Amazon Tech Specs say it is a 5MB/s write but my test was 8MB/s). The design is adequate, but I get the feeling I'll use this one with the mindset that if I loose it one day I won't be brokenhearted. Its the drive that I will let you borrow when you ask me.
Both Patriots came clean with NO software pre-loaded. I LOVE that! The Kingston had some file management exe on the drive but also had a handy uninstall icon right below so it is easy to get rid of which I did as soon as I was done with my test.
It's the thought that counts I suppose, but I'd avoid buying something like this when there are plenty of better options out there. Patriot usually offers quality products, but not on this one.

It was a nice, cheap USB drive while I had it. I kept it on my keychain, which is a bad idea. It was so flimsy that the metal drive part ended up disengaging from the outer shell... Read morePublished 17 months ago by Cee En
