Patriot PEF4G200USB Xporter XT High Speed USB Flash DriveFormer staff writer - May 30, 2007
I don’t know about any of you, but I use flash drives a lot in my home. I have even used them to take files to a friend at work so he may take them home with him for game patches and whatnot. I think they were a great idea and have saved many people the hassle of burning small files to a CD, when all the capacity was not needed. Plus, the portability and durability makes these drives far more superior to a burned CD.
Sure, there are portable hard drives on the market, but they are a lot larger and harder to carry with you. They will not like it much if you happen to be exposing them to a dusty or damp environment - camping anyone? These would be great for holding your MP3 collection. This Patriot Xporter XT is a great drive as far as I can see. It is extremely fast, durable with its rubber coating and has a large capacity of 4GB. It is going to serve as my main flash drive for transporting my files. Heck, at 4GB, it will even carry some large video files!
This drive is fantastic and I would whole-heartedly recommend this flash drive to anyone who may be looking to buy such a device. The only thing I can find that would be a negative for this drive would be the fact that due to its bulky rubber coating, it takes up a lot of room in a stacked USB port configuration and it makes putting a second USB device in to the other port a bit difficult. This can be avoided by using the included USB cable.
