    Thanks for the review. I have been using same type but 64Gb version for 2 months. The performance is so far acceptable. Not through benchmark but the reading on Win7 file transfer details it shows about 110Mb/s during read, and 70+ during write. Both sequential of course.

    Random read write test result?

    I'd call that a plus. These things seem to develop their own legs and walk off enough already. I can only imagine that a USB 3.0 drive will run off.

    Apparently, USB 3.0 was available 2 years ago before any flash drives became readily available.
    So to this review! How about 8 channel 200MB read 120MB write!!! SAME COMPANY EVEN!

    PEF64GSMNUSB $199
    PEF128GSMNUSB $275 after rebate *SOLD OUT*

    At the moment, this Patriot USB3 is only recognized as USB2 device with Dell Precision M4600 workstation laptop. Temporary solution is to add a Powered USB3 Hub in between them and that will work. The problem is we don't bring Hub + power adapter everywhere we go. Hopefully a solution in near future by either Dell or Patriot will solve this.

    Test carried out:-
    1) Patriot USB3 stick on Desktop Asus Maximus IV - OK
    2) Patriot USB3 stick on Dell M4600 - KO
    3) Patriot USB3 stick on Powered USB 3.0 Hub connected to M4600 - OK
    4) Seagate Goflex 500Gb USB3 external HDD on Dell M4600 - OK
