Patriot XT Rage 8GB USB Drive - Fast, Rugged Backup

Nov 8, 2010
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Small, rubber coated, cap-less casing. Fast transfer speed. 

Cons:None

The Bottom Line: Industrial strength USB drive, offers speed, small size and physical strength. Great for important off site backups.


I previously reviewed a 4GB Patriot USB drive. I needed a slightly larger capacity to handle an off site weekly backup which included some audio files etc. I opted for the Patriot XT Rage 8GB drive for its rugged build and cap-less design. An added bonus is the Rage series reported speed over the previous versions of Patriot USB drives. The Rage series of USB drives now uses a cap-less sliding connector design. This is great because you don't have to worry about losing the connector cap.


The drive itself is smaller than the previous Patriot versions but it retains the rubber coated exterior which no doubt improves shock resistance. Of course the drive comes with a lanyard which attaches to the butt end of the drive. I highly suggest users attach the lanyard, as these drives are getting pretty darn small. The lanyard helps make the drive easier to find amid a cluttered desk or drawer. 


While the Patriot Rage is a USB 2.0 drive and will soon be superseded by the new generation of USB 3.0 drives, it does offer some pretty fast transfer times. One test site showed the XT Rage delivering clearly the fastest file transfer speeds. This is great, but not a deal maker for backups. It is nice though. 


Win 7 instantly recognizes the Rage drive. Use is straight forward. The connector slides out from the rubber coated case easily and retracts smoothly. I have no complaints with this drive whatsoever!
