Storage media prices regardless of type (hard disk drives, solid state drives and flash drives) have been taking a significant hit during the past 3 weeks and so after giving it some thought we decided that it would be appropriate if we took a look at the latest USB 3.0 flash drives to hit the market from the big players/manufacturers in the market since now seems to be a very good time for such a purchase. However since not every single drive has made it here yet instead of doing a large comparison this time over we will be standalone reviews as they come. So today the first drive we will be testing is the latest SuperSonic Boost 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive by Patriot Memory.

Just by looking at the specifications of the SuperSonic Boost 32GB it's quite obvious that Patriot did not aim to deliver the best possible read/write speeds nor the highest capacity and so this particular flash drive is certainly not ment for enthusiasts and especially professionals who simply need the best of both worlds for their jobs. Of course enthusiasts and professionals are not the majority of people and so it will be quite interesting to see exactly how the SuperSonic Boost 32GB compares to other USB 3.0 flash drives in the market in terms of speed and of course what kind of price/performance ratio it offers.
