Patriot Supersonic Rage XT 32GB Review (Page 8 of 8)

Page 8 - Conclusion

Retailing for approximately $35 at press time, the Patriot Supersonic Rage XT 32GB will allow you to keep a lot of porn personal documents with you for not a lot of money. Its compact form factor and slide-out design is definitely something I really liked. And before you pull that "but you can upload it to the cloud!" line at me again, I would just like to point out that having this USB flash drive will greatly exceed the read and write performance of any online storage service, bar none. To add on to the list, all you need is a computer with a USB port for it to work, so if your internet ever goes down, or end up in a place with no access to the world wide web, then you won't be out of luck. Of course, I am not here to make a statement of comparison of the merits of having your data in your pocket rather than on someone else's computer; both have its advantages and disadvantages. So let's get back to comparing the Patriot Supersonic Rage XT 32GB against its own kind. A quick search at a popular online retailer website shows us that, at the time of writing this review, there is no faster USB flash drive from another reputable manufacturer for this price. Impressive? I would say so. Tack on Patriot's confident 5-year warranty onto this little guy, there is a lot to love about the Supersonic Rage XT 32GB. Sure, it could be thinner, and the small file write performance is not that great (It is no worse than the competition), but for the price, I am not complaining.
