Very fast, built well!

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: Initially had issues with the device repeatedly disconnecting during file transfers but returned to Patriot and they replaced it free of charge. Since then, have had no problems when using it with my Ultrabook.
Summary: I purchased a 128 GB Supersonic Magnum Patriot flash drive in December, 2013 and another one in December, 2014. I'm a retired senior with a lot of time on my hands, so flash drive speed is less important to me than reliability.
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: 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.
Highly recommend it. My only issue is that it has ...

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.
