Mine is bigger than yours - 64GB pen drive FTW!
It was not that long ago that we all got excited about 2GB and 4GB pen drives, but as flash memory continued to develop and become cheaper, we continually saw improvements in the amount of storage space we see in portable devices.
Only a short while ago the usual suspects started releasing 32GB pen drives, but that portable storage milestone was short-lived - and has since been smashed. Patriot Memory continues to push the boundaries by releasing one of the first high-performance 64GB pen drives to the market, just in time to be a stocking filler or ideal geeky gift for Christmas this year.
Imagine being able to carry around your entire MP3 collection - around 13,000 songs or so - or 15 of your favorite 720p HD movies, all in your pocket? If this was your dream, it no longer has to be.
The Xporter Magnum USB pen drive comes under the Extreme Performance Line from Patriot and promises to offer not only a bucket load of storage space in your pocket, but also top-of-the-line performance, too. Coming configured in dual-channel format, it uses MLC (Multi Level Cell) flash memory, which is slower than SLC (Single Level Cell) flash, especially in the write speed department. Even still, Patriot guarantee up to 210x or a little under 31MB/s read speeds.
Read on as we put the Patriot Xporter Magnum 64GB USB pen drive through its paces and see if it is worthy of the cause of carrying your important data and up to those 210x speed claims.
