Patriot Rage 32GB Flash Drive Review

 
 
 
Patriot Rage 32GB Flash Drive rated Kickass by 3dGameMan.com

Video Review #1173 Summary

Sponsored by: Patriot Memory
Review category: Memory
Manufacturer info: More info

On the outside the Patriot Rage 32GB  Flash Drive looks like your typical flash drive, but it will perform better than standard flash drives because it uses four 4 NAND chips and thus data is managed intelligently and simultaneously transferred, resulting in enhanced performance, especially write speeds. If you're in market for a great looking, durable, fast USB2 flash drive then consider the Patriot Rage lineup.

Patriot makes a quality product, and this thumb drive vouches for that. I will probably never use another brand of flash drive again and I try to get their products when buying memory, I'm still out on my judgement of their SSDs. But when it comes to this, they have a winning formula.

You didn't mention if it has a light to show that it is reading or writing, essential for some applications.

Great review, but 29MB/s is kind of weak. SuperTalent's USB 3.0 Express drive hits over 120MB/s (43MB/s in a USB 2.0 port). I am going to save my sheckles and go that route.

Seems like a pretty sweet drive. Could you do a review on an eSATA flash drive? I've been considering one for putting an alternate OS on.

I would buy it if it was USB3.
I already have a high performance USB2 drive (Imation Atom)

At the beginning of the video it's introduced as a "32B" instead of "32GB." ;D

If you would like to test your own flash drive using CrystalDiskMark, download it here: http://crystalmark.info/software/CrystalDiskMark/index-e.html

Question for you Rodney. When you did your test for the speed of the USB, what kind of files and how large were the files being written? Was it a bunch of small files, or just one large file? Thanks, and great review and unboxing!

@ 59 seconds you refer to the Patriot Rage as the Palet Rage. Other than that, your reviews are really spot on. Its way better than i could anyday.
