Best investment I've made as a Field technician

Summary: This is faster than they review it. I'm running an samsung 840 evo ssd and when I transfer, it's over the max they list most of the time. I also forgot this drive in my pocket and washed it in the laundry, let it dry and works just like it did before and that was over 4 months ago. The only drawback I feel is how big it is. Otherwise, it's the best investment I made as a field technician that needs alot of software tools without carrying around 2 or 3 drives.

Summary: Fastest flash drive I've ever used. Highly recommend it. My only issue is that it has a wide form factor that can take up multiple ports on a laptop. Hasn't gotten in the way too much, though.
Summary: Wicked fast, great supplement for the SSD drive I have in my MacBook Pro. I process a lot of image files where the RAW image, PSD and JPG output can be pretty space intensive; I just work on those directly on the Patriot Magnum and it's almost the same speed as working from my SSD.
Summary: Extremely disappointed with this product, it was working so well and then all of a sudden just randomly stopped working. It now does not pick up on any computer. The USB is now useless. It was not dropped or damaged in any way and i had important information on there.
Summary: Plug it into a USB 3 port - no waiting you can use it instantly. I can use it to store the big files I needed to move around. Pretty fast upload, really fast download from it. It does get warm though - be advised!
Summary: This product does what it says, but prices are going to have to come way down. USB 3.0 is now mainstream so it is an absurdity to purchase the 2.0 stuff even if you still are only equipped with USB 2.0 on your current computers. When you update your computer you will be very thankful you didn't lock yourself into the old 2.0 technology on this type of device.
Pros: Love 128GB on-the-go. Transfer rates are consistent between 80-130MB per second depending on the file (copying from an SSD). I've transferred about 400GB on and off the device already with no issues.
Cons: It's quite wide. I am sure some of the reason is to "show off", but if you need space between other USB ports, it might be an issue. I don't have that, so I can't really complain too much.
Pros: I've had my Patriot Magnum 64gb for about a year now. Never had an issue. Only reason I'm writing this post is because of people complaining about the size. Do yourself a favor: While buying this thumb drive also buy a USB 3.0 extension cable. Mine is about 18" long and allows me to use the USB 3.0 jack that would normally be blocked on the laptop due to the thumb drive's size.
Summary: I own the 64gig and have used it for 2 years. I finally need something bigger. This is the fastest and best out there. More expensive, but worth the price, as the transfer rates blow others away.
