Patriot 32GB Tab Series Micro-sized USB 3.0

G Peterson, Amazon
21 January 2015
  • Summary: Pros: I have the Patriot TAB 16GB and 32GB USB flash drives. I have found although they are USB 3.0, one they have slower write speed that others, reads about the same other 3.0 drives. They will get hot with prolong use, reading or writing. Also realize USD drives have no wear leveling as there flash hard disk replacements do. So you can easily wear out USB flash drive by using it as a boot drive for prolonged write periods of time.

  • Summary: I use mine for my daughters portable dvd player and it works great. Its small so it cant be broken while using in car during use. Great transfer rate and getting cheaper monthly. It did get warm first time i plugged it up, but maybe the update fixed that? I recommend it.

Does what i needed it to do.

L. Lubetsky, Amazon
26 November 2014
  • Summary: Does what I needed it to do. I needed a small drive, preferably metal, to load up with MP3 files and plug into a car stereo and stay put. This one is all that. Its small, sturdy and so far as done what I bought it to do. It does get a little warm, but not to the point of my thinking there's a problem. It could even be the nature of a small drive that's made out of metal, rather than plastic.

So far, pretty good for Live USB 3.0 booting on an HP Chromebook 14 in developer/legacy+usb boot mode

consum0rx, Amazon
26 November 2014
  • Summary: This is my first USB3.0 usb "stick". To describe the appearance when inserted, it's really more of a 'nub'. My intention was to see if I could get a fast "Live USB" operating system to boot up and have better performance than with USB 2.0 sticks/USB2 ports. It's been nice. The feel is slightly lagged but *much* lesser so than when you have an entire operating system loaded from slower USB2.0 device The price and size are great.

Very nice package (+ possible fix for write-protect condition if it happens to you)

Brian, Amazon
5 August 2014
  • Summary: Very small, durable package. Fits nicely on a key chain. Seems faster than my other USB drives, but I never made any measurements. I've had this for 2 months and just had a problem with the drive saying it was write-protected. Tried nearly everything to fix it with no luck. Contacted Patriot for help or an RMA number.

Nice small size, but hole is too small to be generally useful.

Carlson Engineering, Inc., Amazon
4 August 2014
  • Summary: Haven't used much, because the hole in the top is significantly smaller than I realized. Most key rings will not fit through that hole easily. You would need some sort of string or something to attach it.

I really like the small size of the thumb drive

Matt Curtis, Amazon
20 July 2014
  • Summary: I really like the small size of the thumb drive, but it isn't much use if it can't reliably store data. I've initiated a replacement with Patriot as my thumb drive started randomly corrupting files, and eventually became unreadable by my machine–forcing me to reformat it. I'm holding out hope that the issue will be fixed with the replacement unit, but until I am able to test it, my review needs to remain as a single star.

Small but SLOW.

Sam, Amazon
14 July 2014
  • Summary: This drive is SLOW. About 2min/GB on my computers. That's about half the speed of my 2-yr old equally cheap USB 3 flash drive and 20% the speed of my WD Passport portable hard drive. This leaves me with plenty of time to write a review while waiting for yesterday's photos to copy. Two stars for the tiny size.
