Specifications, Availability and Pricing
Patriot didn't list the specifications of its PEF64GMNUSB model 64GB pen drive on its website, but after speaking to our contact at the company, we learned that it is based on dual-channel technology and uses MLC flash memory.
The Magnum pen drive is basically the same length and height as most other pen drives on the market, but it is about double width of most, coming in at 26.7mm wide. It also weighs a tad more at about 20 grams, but it is still super light.
It doesn't use a capless design, but the cap is very solid and clicks onto the drive very well and in a secure manor. The pen drive is very stylish with its soft metallic grey, red and black appearance - it is also very solid using a metal shell covering some parts that are made of plastic.
As far as availability goes, it is still a little hard to find, since it is a brand new product. We found it listed at $169.99 USD at a couple popular online retailers in the United States. Comparatively, it is quite a bit more expensive than Kingston's DT150 64GB DataTraveler and only a little more expensive than Corsair's Flash Voyager 64GB drive. Patriot includes a lifetime warranty in case sometimes goes bad.
