Got this to replace the rage 16gb usb 2 version to take advantage of my usb 3 ports on my pc. Copied a few large video files onto it and monitored the transfer speeds and getting 42mbs, which is very fast compared to the usb 2 drive which is about 25mbs. So to summarize its fast, well made got a 5 year warranty and pretty cheap too. The quad chips they use in them seem to do what they say ref speed increases. So if your in the market for a decent usb 3 drive this is one to seriously consider and Patriot ones are the best i have used to date.
