Patriot STELLAR 64GB USB/microUSB 3.0 OTG Flash Drive Conclusion:

In the end, the Patriot STELLAR wasn't as stellar as I may have thought it would be. However, if you consider the purpose and design intent, it fairs much better. The write speeds were a bit of a disappointment compared to the read speeds, but ultimately it was plenty fast for use with my phone (its seeming only main purpose). It was also nice to be able to use it with my ASUS T100TA notebook/tablet without having the docking/keyboard station attached (as it only has a microUSB port on the main body).

I can't say that I will really use the drive just for my phone or tablet in such a manner. I'll likely use the drive in exFAT format and use it as a typical flash drive on the go. However, the microUSB is the key bonus to this drive all around. I couldn't really find too many other drives out there with similar capabilities that weren't either massive in size, or well, really just massive in size. Small and on the go are two words meant to be together.

It is nice knowing that I can be on the go with my microUSB devices, format on the fly, or just use them as they were intended without plugging into a base station for full USB. I think that this little drive will indeed be a part of my usual to go routine; props to Patriot for creating a STELLAR drive that's truly outside the box.

 

Pros:

  • Tiny - fits about anywhere you want to carry it
  • Large capacities available; no one has too many small (less than 8GB) drives these days!
  • Quick to format on the go to use with your phone, or not!
  • Great for multipurpose use, without the need for adapters or cables
  • Great price per GB

 

Cons:

  • Tiny - also makes it easy to misplace
  • Fairly SLOW write speeds, but fine for its purpose (load it up and go, or secondary storage on your phone)
