    Im wondering if anyone knows of a USB drive that is SSD performance but smaller than normal external 1.8/2.5" drives?

    Thumbdrives suck

    I have the Patriot Supersonic Magnum (it's available in 64, 128, and 256GB sizes), and I get read and write speeds pretty close to the advertised speeds of 200MB/s and 120MB/s, respectively.

    Thank you. Checking that out.

    I'll look at the patriots too. Looks promising.
