Great little stick

Summary: Great little stick. After formatting you get 119gigs. It's fast and reliable...but a little unconventional with the way its cap~less...their is a slide mechanism that makes the usb head pop forward. Oh and I got mine on black friday for a ridiculous low cost %60 off or more i think.
Cons: I got this device about 2 weeks ago, and I have gotten several other USB3 drives with the transfer rate of 65 to 88 mb per second. This device is suppose to be USB3 and the transfer rate is just under 9mb per second. If you want USB3 pass this device up.
Cons: Unreliable writes, CHKDSK can't fix it. After 1 year of moderate usage - I didn't even move it around, always on a desktop PC - it started to develop "bad sector" as it were, failing to reliably write. It is to the point the OS thinks the volume isn't clean every time you plug it, and CHKDSK fail...
Summary: This is an incredible thumb drive. On my system, I benchmarked it as 260MB/s Read, 90MB/s write. It's almost like a 2nd Generation SSD you can carry on your key chain. I use it for running virtual machines and it's perfect for it.
Summary: Consider them pro use equipment. Worth every penny in time savings if you are on the clock.
Pros: I've been beating this for years. It works and works perfect. I use it to transfer 50 - 100 mb size graphic files in mass all the time. I normally just copy or write the files and remove the drive. The computer you use sets the speed. Some computers that claim USB are better than others. Laptops ...
Summary: I bought the Patriot Super Sonic Magnum 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive one and a half year ago because I needed a fast USB 3.0 (and USB 2.0 compatible) flash drive that also had a large capacity (64GB). I was positively surprised to see how fast it was.
This is physically a lot bigger than you think it is. Look at the given dimensions and don't assume it is of a reasonable size.

Summary: I bought this based on reviews of its speed. I have not used it yet, so I still assume it's quite good. I would have aprpecaited a review taht draws attention to the product's physical dimensions. WHo expects a usb drive nowadays to be this large?
Summary: The drive measures 3 1/8" long, 1 1/16" wide, 5/16" thick. Mostly black which is the metal part and a light blue plastic.
Pros: It's thinner than I thought it would be, which I like. Copied 6.28 GB of music in 6 min.. I like the colors of the drive. Opens files fast and I like the drive. I am completely happy with the drive I received.
