Fast thumbdrive, suitable for portable apps,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Patriot PEF128GSMNUSB 128GB Supersonic Magnum USB 3.0 Flash Drive (Personal Computers)
Great thumbdrive, suitable as a backup solution or as a "carry all your home with you".
It is a bit large (in terms of physical size), may cause problems with other peripherals in contiguous USB ports, but it is also light and fast, and very sturdy with its metal body.
I lead a "nomadic computer life" divided between my home computer and work computer, but I like keeping my files, and most importantly my programs, and all it's settings handy and with me all the time. To accomplish this I use portable software (no installation needed, saves settings to the program folder) like the one provided at PortableApps.com, on a daily basis, even at home.
This is the first thumbdrive I used that is fast enough and suitable for running portable apps directly from it, it is not as fast as an external hard drive unfortunately (I notice a delay in certain actions, especially searching or indexing) which I did not notice with my external HDD over USB 2.0. Still it is very fast for running some pretty complex apps (Like Photo editing GIMP, Firefox and Blender 3D Modeling), even through USB 2.0 formatted with exFAT file system. (Will try soon with FAT and NTFS to see if there are any performance gains)
