Shockproof, very fast
Larger than the the average USB stick
This drive has very high read/write speeds compared to anything else in this price range. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a quick drive.

Comfortably Numb
Experience: 3 Years
*Robust package.
*Lifetime warranty.
*slow to average write speeds.
After 3 years of faithful service, the drive is still tickin' along although it doesn't get used as much since I have faster and larger thumb drives. ATTO Disk Benchmark indicates write speeds of 8 MB/s on larger files (>128 kB) but read speeds are a respectable 30 MB/s tested on a USB 3.0 port formatted NTFS.

Had one incident where the drive became unusable (lost data) and had to reformat but all was well subsequently which indicates that it was probably an ejection issue rather than hardware failure.

No complaints but if you demand high performance, look elsewhere.

Experience: 3 Weeks
Fast, Portable, durable
This drive was a great purchase! It runs fast, and its solidly built. I'm just glad I can carry around a blue ray movie on my flash drive without it taking forever to copy over. Would definately reccommend.

Experience: 5 Months

Very fast for a USB2.0
Rubber case (no scratch or slip)
Lifetime warranty
Got this to back up files, I didn't want to get a slow thumbdrive so I opted to pay a bit more to get the patriot after reading several review.

Experience: 1 Years
-water resistant is more like water proof
-relatively fast
-a bit bulky. cant plug a second device right beside this on my motherboard or usb hub.
I just ran this through my washer. Rolling around in cold water for 30 minutes I found it between the washer and dyer (so it did not go for a dry cycle).

I peeled off the rubber thinking this was toast, but it was bone dry inside. I plugged it into my computer and it works no problem.

Lets hope the other two usb sticks on the same key chain work...

Experience: 1 Days

I like the rubber cover but it look very big.
I bought this for a day and I try to do some speed test on it. It is very slow USB drive. It only have around 8-10MB/second for writing speed. It is very SLOW. I have a A-DATA 4G high speed USB drive. It can do 16MB/second for writing. I don't knwo why people said it is a fast USB drive. I am not happy with the speed for this USB drive.

Most ppl said it's fast but it still takes a while to transfer the whole 16GB I guess
Good cap. Not easy to fall off
corsair 16GB is cheaper when I bought it
I found a test from other site
Sequential Read : 27.543 MB/s
Sequential Write : 9.279 MB/s
Random Read 512KB : 27.043 MB/s
Random Write 512KB : 2.259 MB/s
Random Read 4KB : 2.156 MB/s
Random Write 4KB : 0.031 MB/s
Why I bought this instead of the cheaper Corsair? The hotel(stupid mirage) we stayed in Vegas charged us by the minute for using their computer.

Experience: 14 Days
Speed and price
durability of cap design
I was impressed with the speed of this memory drive but I was not very impressed with how they designed the cap. The cap is only a tightly fitting rubber piece that slides on and off. Although I can see this working to keep out dirt ect., it doesnt seem to protect much against physical abuse of bending and banging which a well used drive will go through. However, if all you are looking for speed this drive is the fastest I have ever used.

Experience: 4 Months
Size, price, lifetime warranty, thick rubber skin
it died
First USB drive of a dozen owned to die. Glad I chose it because of the lifetime warranty (oh, and the price was good). Have to mail it to California tomorrow - hope it's not too costly to send off.

I will give Patriot the benefit of the doubt here, but I am not happy with the death. I copied 12gb of ghost images to move to a new PC I was setting up. Moved across the room and plugged it in - Windows said hardware failure. Tried another port, same error. Then went back to the original PC and connected it - no response. It was dead.

Both PC's work fine, and my other USB's worked - first thought the PC showing error caused the problem - but it's been working well for 2 weeks.

So Patriot is on my watchlist now.

Experience: 1 Weeks
The Rubberized Case and sexy blue LED indicator
1 Foot cable for connecting your USB drive
LIFETIME warranty!
write speed could be a little better
Got this to replace the JetFlash 16GB that died on me in 6 months I got a 8GB one that's for backup but after the 16GB one went, I'm not so happy with my data been on the 8GB. Here's the Benchmark Score:

HD Tach

Burst Speed: 32.9 MB/s
Random Access: 4.4ms
CPU Utilization: 1%
Average Read: 30.8 MB/s
