Patriot Memory SuperSonic Boost XT 256 GB Flash Drive

Patriot Memory has a lot of competition on the DRAM and NAND Flash industries, which is why it sometimes launches things that really stand out, like the new SuperSonic Boost XT flash drive.

The name alone should be enough to imply what sorts of capabilities the product possesses, but we'll go through them one by one all the same. They deserve it too. Sure, the newcomer is bound to cost a pretty penny, to say the least, but at least it won't seem undeserved. Besides, between getting one of these and buying a portable hard disk drive (HDD) or solid-state drive (SSD) instead, prospective customers may very well choose the smaller but equally capable flash stick. Of course, if the capacity was any less than 256 GB, we might not have said the same. That's right, the new SuperSonic Boost XT flash drive has 256 GB to offer. This is actually the latest addition to an existing product line, which previously topped at 128 GB.

Thanks to the USB 3.0 interface, it doesn't take long to move large-capacity files, as the top read speed is of 150 MB/s. The writing speed is considerably lower, however. Still, even 30 MB/s are nothing to scoff at, not when USB 2.0 would limit things to 4 MB/s or so. Add to this a rugged standard capped enclosure and there isn't much of a reason against buying this thing. Well, except the price, but we don't know it yet. We do know the exact measurements though, so here they are: 59.7 x 12.2 x 19.8 mm / 2.35 x 0.48 x 0.77 (WxDxH) and a weight of 13 grams / 0.45. The photo up on the left should be an accurate representation. As you may come to agree, that's not the sleekest case we've ever seen, but then rugged things aren't supposed to look fancy, and Patriot tried to add some aesthetic value anyway.
