Amazingly fast transfer speed. Simply plug it in and save - it's as easy as that. I was astonished to watch my music collection transfer into the XT at around 4 seconds per album! Included is a tough white lanyard with handy plastic clip with which to easily attach and remove the Patriot XT. This wonderful device has hung around my neck on hot sweaty train journeys and even to a festival - and still works perfectly thanks to its durable rubber housing. The rubber cap is not physically tied to the XT's body but has never shown the slightest sign of slipping off. This is a well thought-out product which I would highly recommend.

Does everything it says it would. Both computers I use it on find it immediately and download is seriously fast. Whay does anyone bother with burning discs anymore?! For a non-IT junkie I still find it amazing that you can carry around so much memory in a small stick. Great value - buy one...

Although the product is now more expensive than when I bought it just a week ago (paid £17.99) I think it still represents value for money. It has a tough rubbery exterior, with a rubber cap. There is a lug for a lanyard too.
It's quicker than any other USB stick I've used with XP, and with Vista it's simply awesome.

There are of course cheaper and smaller products available, but if you want something tougher that you can still feel in your pocket, or want to take a spot of wear and tear in bags or cases, this is the product for you.

Great! Took it out of its packaging, pluged it in and straight away it came up. No more waiting around. And files transfer at super fast speeds! The thick rubber covering the stick does its job and protects the usb from any damage including water. You could chuck it around and it would carry on working. Even though the lid is not fastened on, there is little chance of it coming of and getting lost. Overall a great buy and is definitely recommended.

I was thinking of upgrading the capacity of my Flash memory and reviewed lots of different alternatives on the net. The Patriot caught my attention with it's striking black and red design...it looked kind of manly :) It actually functions brilliantly, it's V Fast and it also works with Vista to expand the ram capacity.

Now for the negative stuff -
It's a little on the large side because it is encased in rubber (on the positive side the rubber offers protection and waterproofing, it's pretty indestructable).
The other point is that I have lost the USB cover/cap, becasue it completely seperates from the body of the stick. Thanks for reading.

WOW, this is the best USB memory stick ive ever had, and trust me ive got through quite a few in the past five years...

I'm a Sixth Form student and its 8GB capacity is perfect for storing and transporting all of my work around, ranging from photoshop files to powerpoint 2007 documents. Its uberfast transfer rate means work can be loaded and saved much quicker than with conventional memory sticks. And its rubber outer casing is a fantastic design inovation, no more brakages at the bottom of my bag or under my books. The cap is rubberised as well and although there is no true catch to secure it the rubbers tight grip keeps it on no matter what.

Its also supplied with a male to female USB cable incase you have to use an older maching where the designers obviously hadnt thought about people using USB memory sticks...

Oh and it looks cool aswell, with the red and the black, overall 5/5* :)

This pen drive comes in shrink-wrap and includes a white lanyard and a USB 2.0 extension cable (about 30cm / 12in long). Some real-life usage stats for you guys:

These tests were performed under Linux. (Ubuntu 10.04 LTS)
The USB stick was formatted as NTFS.
For anyone interested, I used /dev/shm/ as my RAMdisk.
The file used was a 350MB *.avi file.

Copy from RAMdisk to Patriot USB stick:
1 file @ 350MB (367019896 bytes) - 0:33.61 (~10.4MB/s write)
Move from RAMdisk to Patriot USB stick:
1 file @ 350MB (367019896 bytes) - 0:32.63 (~10.7MB/s write)

Copy from Patriot USB stick to RAMdisk:

I can confirm that this drive DOES meet the Xbox 360 required speed stats and thus will work as an external device. However, due to the bulky casing it will not fit at the rear of the legacy white Xbox 360 Premium (20GB). On the other hand it does fit easily into the two front facing ports.

I am unable to test it on the new Xbox 360 S.

The rubber case is very rugged and, as per the packaging, 'splashproof'. (Well, I got drenched in the rain and it was fine in my pocket). The only gripe I have is that you can use the end as EITHER a lanyard connector OR to hold the cap when in use. Not both, as the lid simply falls off if you try to use it while attached to a lanyard.

Overall, I rate this product 5*. Excellent value for money - served its purpose well. I am impressed.
