Summary: My drive has worked great for me. It definitely gets hot and I would be worried about it burning out if I left it in for extended periods of time. For storing movies or other big files, this works great though and I haven't had any issues.
RECOMMEND! Really small, Only sticks out 3/8" of the computer.

Summary: Needed extra storage on my computer, this little dream is so small, it doesn't stick out or even risk the chance of bending like the other USB storage devices - yes, have accidentially bent two of those. Only sticks out 3/8" of the computer.
Summary: A year and a half ago I left a poor review about this thing. While I liked the performance and build quality, it died on me in under two months. Patriot responded to my negative review by quickly shipping me a new one.
Pros: Tough, extremely durable, decent performance. Small. Fits on a keychain for portability and security.
Cons: First one died in under two months, but Patriot replaced it and the new one has been stellar.
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.

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

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.
