Summary: This is the second usb stick I buy da Patriot brand. The speed of it really is impressive. The big problem is that the casing is detached with little operating time (when you pull the computer, only comes casing, and Stick media remains stuck to the computer).
Summary: See my review for the Patriot Supersonic Boost 128GB as far as performance. I tested this and the Boost at the same time. Both were super super fast. However, this one is much wider than it looks.
Buyer beware, don't spend the extra buy a cheaper drive.

Summary: This was such a waste of money. I should have bought a cheaper drive. This has to be by far my slowest USB drive. I'm transferring at 11MBs on USB 3. The same files transfer at 49MBs on my old 64 gig USB 3 drive. They said it would be up to 120MBs, I'm not even getting 10% of that. Never again.
Summary: I needed a large, fast, external flash drive which worked with the USB3 ports on my Mac. After researching the products my choice came down to this drive and a SanDisk Extreme. SanDisk did not have a drive larger than 64GB and the 256G version of this drive was too expensive at the time.
Summary: As I said earlier I will thoroughly test the unit when I get it and update my review. I'm sure I won't be disappointed.
Pros: I have owned the 64 GB Magnum for 2 + years with 0 issues. I am anticipating the same satisfaction with the 128GB one. I will test and update my review when it arrives.
Cons: None at this time. I see a lot of people are complaining about the "size" of the drive. ALL MAGNUMS ARE LARGE IN SIZE! Yes it usually will cover up 2 USB ports depending on your MB/Case configuration. Is the size of the unit a deal breaker?---absolutely not. I also see people complaining about th...

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.
How not to make a high capacity usb 3.0 flash drive

Summary: I bought this when it first came out as it was the first of its kind and seemed like the best on the market. After trying it out the first time I noticed that the 100+ read/write speeds were clearly a lie, I barely got over 60mbps write using fastcopy on a usb 3.0 port, 8 core processor, 32gb ram...
Summary: Purchased this unit due to the size of the drive. When you pull it out of the USB port it comes apart from the casing. When you call Patriot you get a voicmail, have to leave a message and wait for a call back -- terrible customer service.
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!
