Patriot Supersonic Boost XT USB Flash Drive
The Patriot Memory Supersonic Boost XT USB Flash Drive is a good choice for local data backup to a removable USB flash drive. The product line includes data capacity models of 8, 16, 32, 64, 128 and 256 GB.
The drive supports high-speed USB 3.0 and is backward compatible with USB 2.0. For 32 GB and larger capacities, data transfer speeds are up to 150 MB/sec read, up to 30 MB/sec write. Patriot also offers other models with faster data transfer speeds.
The Supersonic Boost XT flash drive has a durable, rugged design, with a rubberized housing exterior that safeguards the drive from the elements. The rubberized design protects it from drops, shock, and physical damage, and is water-resistant, offering protection from spills and liquids.
The compact size and ruggedized features make it a great choice for transporting data between locations. It includes a slot in the end of the housing for attachment to a lanyard or key ring.
With storage capacity sizes up to 256 GB, it can be used for data backup as well as transporting files. My computer system does real-time data backups to remote encrypted cloud storage, as well as nightly local data backup to two Patriot flash drives. Another Patriot flash drive, containing a recent data backup, is kept in a fireproof safe.
The narrow width of the drive, allows multiple drives to be installed in adjacent USB ports. It supports easy plug and play functionality. The drive comes with a 5-year warranty.
Patriot has a reputation for good quality products and I have good results with the Patriot brand name.
