5.0 out of 5 stars Fast, reliable, tiny and all for a decent price., 16 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Patriot 32GB Supersonic Boost Series USB 3.0 Flash Drive With Up to 150MB/sec (Personal Computers)
I can't vouch for the USB 3.0 performance but here is my view on USB 2.0 performance using WIN 7 with a 2.4 ghz processor:

1) Using two seperate 700mb files I got 19.2-20 mb write speeds and 29-32 mb read speeds. A full 10mb faster than the patriot xt speedboost model I upgraded from. Similar times from a 1.6gb file too that I tested.

2) The size is pretty small. It shaved 25% off the length of the patriot xt speedboost model. The cap is held on by friction so make sure to wipe it clean from dust and grime from time to time and it should stay on pretty solidly.

3) For around the £20-£30 price range you can't go wrong with this flash drive. I was considering the Kingston DTSE9H for £15.99 until I saw reviews about the horrible sub-5mb write speeds. Also the HPv210w for £20 but thought i'd pay extra for the speed this one provides. I heard good stuff about Supertalent drives but all I checked paled in comparison to Patriot drives size for size and for price ranges.

In conclusion it's an absolute fantastic drive for the price. Yes it is more expensive than other drives around the same size but its really worth the extra £££ for the quality and speed/performance it delivers. From the other review about the USB 3.0 performance I can't wait to utilise it when I finally do upgrade to USB 3.0.
