With the recently unleashed SuperSonic, Patriot is breaking new ground for USB flash drives. So far, their driving force was the Xporter, already boasting impressive speeds with models like the Magnum (which coincidentally, we will meet again in this post). But integrating USB 3.0 together with leading edge technology, Patriot is taking it up a notch. The SuperSonic flash drives use multiple channeling to make the most out of 3.0, delivering real high speeds even for large sequential file transfers. And for those on a budget, there is also more down-to-earth model. Simple yet stylish, a black and blue theme rounds off the picture. Literally!

    Hello Bob,
    their website is being upgraded hence the downtime. Not sure about their phone number – maybe they’re revamping their whole system? Im sure in a week or so everything will be back to normal.

    You can purchase the supersonic magnum through the links I provided above, ebay or amazon.

    These are pretty awesome looking. Have you seen this post on the Top 5 USB Drives of 2012? It covers a lot of high capacity and compact flash drives.
