It's isn't very often that we are looking at flash drives around here, but after getting in three last month I decided it was time to turn three into thirty for a round up. Patriot sent over the XT Rage for a feature review, but I turned this into a bit of a preview of our upcoming round up.
With the final results in hand I can tell you that the Patriot Rage is in the top two highest performing USB 2.0 drives on the market and by far the easiest to purchase (the other is a bit exotic). If you want to know about the other drives you will just have to wait and see, but it is very safe to say that you will not have buyer's remorse if you purchase the Patriot Rage now and read the round up later.
Patriot has four capacity sizes for the Rage and with them, four price points. Our 32GB sample is available at Newegg for 66.99 USD. When it comes to pricing, 32GB drives range from 49.99 to 284.99 USD, so clearly the Rage XT is priced on the lower side of the meridian line. Corsair claims to have the fastest USB 2.0 thumb drive (not tested in house to date), but it comes with a price tag of 79.99 USD, 13 Dollars more than the Rage XT and uses a very aged design with a cap.
